Original Axle Seals?

Does anyone know if you can get the original style axle seals, ive checked everyparts house around my area and they all have the same thing, i got a once piece axle kit for my m20 and the new seal they sent is alot wider then the stock one and requires you to machine down the spacer, there isnt much spacer to begin with, any ideas?

Mine were plug and play no other modifications required. The stock seal assy's are avail from any decent gearhouse. Which spacer are you refering to?

the seals that came in my one piece kit had a metal ring around the outer facing side of them which made them almost 1/4 inch thicker, if i put it all in with the stock seals it all fits perfect but with the new seals he bearing stick out about 1/4 inch. the instruckings say it cant be more then .06 to .08 so that means if i go with the new seals i have to have the spacer machined down. what brand one piece did you go with, i cant remember off hand but i think i have a yukon setup but every parts house i go to has the same seal that came with the kit. should i just bite the bullet and have the spacer machined or is there a way around this, i definitly dont want to use the original seals?

I used superior axles and I don't remember any big deal. Call your dealer or /yukon and get some answers. The guys a Randy's are pretty sharp.
