So I'll try this with a little more detail.
1. So I have these 31 spline Strange axles with a bearing with the seal built in.
2. When I insert them into my old housing and now again into my new housing...they stick out slightly where I would expect them to be flush.
3. I don't use drum brakes, but I do use disc brakes which have 2 piece backing plates and work surprisingly a lot like axle retainers
4. And I end up with a gap...which is hard to see because of a crummy angle.
A gap I never had with my 28 spline axles and standard bearings where I used a second separate seal in the tube. Am I only one who has these crazy problems?
