If you change the rear axle seals it is a good idea to get yourself a new set of hubs as the sealing surface on the originals is usually so worn that even new seals may leak in a short time. Another possibility is to investigate getting a shaft repair kit of very thin sleeves that fit over the sealing surface of the hubs. Look up sealing sleeves on the internet or just repairing shaft sealing surfaces. There are a couple of companies that make these in a variety of sizes in a few thousands of a size increments and you can find them with a little work. Usually run around $25 each.
