This was for a 2003 triton 16’ boat trailer, 13” wheels. The seals in this kit will work with ez-lube spindles that have the permanent collar ring. Beware of the complete L44649 bearing kits that have the 1.25” seal; make sure you measure your seal first. The rings included were not needed for my application. No one local had the correct size - these seals are about 1 3/8” inside diameter. Ordered late on Fri, had them here Mon. Thank you etrailer!


Great product, solves the problem of rusty axles eating the seals. I do however put the sleeves on with epoxy.


It didn't work on my trailer. The ring inside the sleeve spaced the sleeve too far out and the seal did not ride on the sealing surface. I was leaving the next day on a fishing trip so I just removed the sleeve and seal and purchased standard seals locally..

These Bearing Buddy seals work with spindles that use the L44649 bearing for the inner bearing and use Bearing Buddies with at 1.980 inch hub bore.


Parts came in ahead of scheduled time. Some parts had separated during shipping but the the great people at etrailer specially Tammy D were able to identify the pieces and everything went together great

Still working good as new


Always fast and expert service at
had a time looking for the right parts for my Yacht Club Trailer to replace wheel bearings and seals. Etrailer had everything I needed and more. I also added grease caps instead of bearing buddy's i have on there. ( Always have a hard time taking the grease gun off the fittings. )
Love the roller bunks i bought last year too.

It's still January, but i will be set to go this spring.
Etrailer is my go to place for all my boat and trailer needs.
Thanks guyz n gallz at Etrailer. I'm one happy camper.

Everything is A-Okay!!! Thanks for the great customer service!!!


Proper size works great




This was the only place where I could find this item. Perfect fit and easy installation. Hopefully this will fix the problem I’ve been having with the spindle. Excellent customer service and fast shipping!


I wish this grease seal wear sleeve kit would have worked for my trailer. They seem like a good fix for an annoying problem that many of us have with boat trailers. My issue was with the sleeve installed on the spindle, the hub is pushed out 1/8" from is previous resting place. This pushes the castle nut further out and I cant even come close to installing the cotter pin back in its hole in the spindle threads. Even if I omit the washer behind the nut the hole is still not accessible for the pin. I called customer service and they were sympathetic to the situation but I cant return it because it's used. I'm not too pleased about eating this cost since there was no mention of this potential issue. So if you dont have another 1/8"of play behind the castle nut to work with then you may want to consider another option.


I ordered wheel bearings, grease seals, and Bearing Buddies for my trailer. Delivery was fast, the items were all high-quality, and the videos on helped me install them. I'm especially happy with the grease seals, which include a stainless steel ring to cover the old dinged-up seal surface on my axle and prevent the new seals from wearing out quickly: "Spindle Grease Seal Set for L44649 Inner Bearing and 1.980 Bearing Buddy - BB60005".


I've an older small utility trailer with grease seals and seal wear rings that are not commonly available. I looked through trailer parts outlets in Seattle and on the web but ended up on-line with an etrailer customer rep. He knew exactly what I was after and had a kit to support it....for two hubs no less! I ordered on Monday with standard delivery which actually arrived the following Friday. With a Saturday parts installation, I was operational for Monday's yard waste haul. BTW: I had purchased the bearing/races locally but the shop only had 3 so I ordered the 4th from etrailer. Their price was $6.83 vs. $12.90 for the exact manufacture/make/model. If I had not already had the locally purchased races installed and the bearing greased, I wild have returned them and ordered 4 sets. Nuts.


Check your axles before ordering to see if you need to replace the spindle collars . Well made but did not need extra parts Originally contacted etrailer for help with the correct seal size for a 2002 Zieman single axle PWC trailer. Seal dimensions measured were approximately 1.38 inner and 1.980 outer with L44649 inner and outer bearings.
Thought that the collar was a grease deflector/shield. Did not realize that the collar insert was a separate part of the spindle. Just needed the seals, but theses came with a separate ss inner seal collars for the spindles. My old ones were OK with no grooves cut into them so I did not need to replace. New seals appear to be working fine.


Bought this set for my boat trailer to use in conjunction with my SS Bearing buddies.
They work as promised. As others have pointed you may have to file down the grove in your castle nut to get your cotter pin back in ...not a big deal. This is my second set in 2 years as I am in the habit of repacking my bearings on that naturally its pretty hard to remove the seal without damaging it. Just remember to order the right set to fit your spindle..,they have a few different ones..


Ordered wheel bearings for my trailer and first of all I had no Idea where I would find the help to find the right parts. etrailer helped me and I installed the parts sent and they worked like a charm. Back to full use and working well this past year. Not only did they send the part but also provided tips and techniques to remove the old and replace the new. For an weekend mechanic, they gave me the help I need to do the job quickly and safely.


Nothing wrong with the product. it deserves 5 stars. I gave it 4 stars because it wasn't part of a spindle set, i.e. I bought two spindle sets with smaller seals because the bearing and race sizes were what i needed but the seal in the spindle kit was not the size I needed so I had to throw away the seals that came with the spindle set and buy these. I knew that when placing the order. I would like etrailer to have a spindle set that includes this size seal.


These things work great for rehabbing worn grease seal surfaces on older axles. I use them whenever I can, especially when worn, pitted, or damaged grease seal surfaces would otherwise prevent reusing an axle that is fine in every other way. It really helps to clean up where the new grease seal o-ring will seat on the spindle with emory cloth before installing. I've used them on some pretty rough axles and never had a leak since.


very happy every thing got here quickly,parts are all good and are the right fit.
little disappointed the bearing buddy kit could not be used entirely, the seals fit my spindles fine and will do the job but could not use the sleeves, would not fit over existing seal surface.
overall happy, service was excellent.


Being no handyman I had to enlist my son's help, who's a mechanic. But he was too busy to call and order these parts himself, so I had to do it--and I really had no idea what I was supposed to order other than they were grease seals for my 17-foot trailer wheel-hubs... Luckily, upon calling I got to speak to Kathy who, with immense patience, guided me through until I understood where and what to look for. Even then I pretty much flipped a coin... The parts arrived sooner than expected (less than the 3-day shipping mode chosen) and were a perfect match. Thank you!


Easy to install, the stainless steel surface seals MUCH better than the original pitted surface on my spindles. Much less expensive than a new axle!

Easy to install, but it will push the bearings out slightly (less than 1/8") so the spindle nut needed some modification.


this did fix my spindle/leaking grease seal issue, however I had to modify the spindle a little to make it work. The directions tell you #1 and #5 model seal kits sometimes don't fit some axles as intended based on axle/spindle design. I have an old 87' axle and this was the only product I could find that would work. Took a test drive and so far no more leaking grease seal. This worked when a regular grease seal would not have worked for me as my seal surface was old and damaged and worn.


My axle spindes already have permanent stainless steel surface rings/ seal lips which are 1 3/8 or 1.375". This was the only way I could get a grease seal with an ID 1.375 and OD 1.980. Checked a 100 different places. Didn't need the other parts. Why doesn't any one carry that size seal???? ( ID 1.373 OD 1.980) Was Glad You had it . Thank you--OKB


Had grooves worn in spindles under rear seals. Thought, wonder if there's any way to put a bushing over worn grooves & use an oversize inner id seal? Was tired of grease slinging all over inner rim. This seal kit fixes problem just like new with its ss sleeves.Great product!!!!


i ordered this part thinking all my troubles with grease leakage at inner seal would be cured. but when i received parts , there was a note on package that i may have to alter my retaining nut by shaving off the backside to make it thinner or by cutting the grooves where the cotter pin slips through a little deeper in order to get the hub on and secured. the stainless steel ring will not let my hub slide on deep enough to use original nut and pin. i wish this "NOTE" was listed on here and explained before i purchased....wasted money here! and still need a rear seal.


I've yet to install these but this is the bearing I need. The kit appears to be what will work so this is a trial. The old bearings were getting worn and the must always get replaced after inspection so why not just do it all at once. Watch the video on this site for instructions, it makes it easier if you've never done it before. Nice to see these parts and kits available in one place.


The seal ring just made an old rough bearing seal surface smooth again! Saved the spindles and from the suspension standpoint, I now have a safe new trailer. Bingo!

  • How to Determine the Bearing Size and Type of Spindle on a 2005 Trailstar Pro 185 Trailer
    To find out the correct bearing and seal size for your 2005 Trailstar Pro 185 trailer, you will need to take apart the wheel hub assembly and get the numbers off the bearings and seals. The axle capacity of your trailer would help also. Once you have those numbers, then we can get you the correct bearings and seal. If there are no numbers on the bearings, you will need to take measurements on the spindle. I am including a link to our spindle main page. At the top of the page is a diagram...

  • Reason for Metal Ring Inside the Stainless Steel Seal Ring on Spindle Grease Seal Set
    According to Bearing Buddy, the purpose of the metal ring inside the stainless steel seal ring on the # BB60005 is to add additional support. Because the seal ring is so thin in this kit, they added a support ring that goes in the back side of the seal ring so it doesn’t collapse. The support ring is required. Regarding the instructions for the Spindle Grease Seal Set, it calls for 20 inch pounds of torque, not foot pounds.

  • Will The Spindle Grease Seal Set # BB60005 Fit With a Spindle Diameter of 1.462 Inches?
    The Spindle Grease Seal Set # BB60005 will not fit on your spindle if the landing for the grease seal is 1.462" in diameter. The seals this comes with have an inner diameter of 1.375" which is smaller than the measurement you gave. Be sure to verify this is the diameter of the grease seal landing and not the stub behind the grease seal as it can be larger. This kit is designed for use with Unique BT Hubs.

    The inner stainless steel ring included with the Spindle Grease Seal Set # BB60005 has an inside diameter of 1.0645 inches (and an outside diameter of 1.375 inches). This ring is designed to install on the spindle for the grease seal to ride on once the hub is in place.

It is not however meant to repair...

  • Can Bearing Buddy Grease Seal be Used On EZ Lube Axles
    Yes, the Bearing Buddy Spindle Grease Seal # BB60005 can be used without a Bearing Buddy bearing protector. However, it depends what's causing the issue as to whether or not this will solve your problem. I would inspect your spindle and make sure it's smooth and not damaged at all. It's possible the seal failure you're getting is from the seals not being on a good surface to start out with.

  • How Tight Is Seal Ring Supposed To Fit On Trailer Spindle
    I called my contact at Bearing Buddy and they told me that the seal ring included with the Spindle Grease Seal Set, part # BB60005 will work fine on your spindle that measures 1.25 inches diameter. This set includes the steel seal ring, O-ring, and neoprene, double-lip grease seal. The kit includes all parts needed for 2 hubs. The seal is compressed when the hub is tightened down and keeps grease from escaping on the inner side of the spindle.

  • Bearing Buddy Grease Seal Recommendation for L44649
    The inner diameter of the steel ring of the # BB60008 is 1.25 inches as it is designed to be used with hubs that have an inner bearing number of # LM67048. Since your inner bearing seems to have a 1.5 inch inner diameter most likely you have the L44649 bearing (you need to verify this), and the correct kit for you would be part # BB60005.

  • Will the Spindle Grease Seal Set part # BB60005 Fit a Spindle that Has L44649 Bearings
    The part # BB60005 should work for you since you have an inner bearing of L44649 and your seal inner diameter is 1.375 inches. You will want to verify that the inner diameter of where your current grease seal is on your hub measures 1.980 inches though. Another way to say this would be the outer diameter of your current grease seal.

  • Replacement Grease SEal for 2011 Zieman S-1 Trailer Hub
    If the existing grease seal on your trailer is in fact the NOK part # AB1990E that you referenced in your question, then I recommend using the Redline Grease Seal # 13194 as a replacement. This is a confirmed replacement for the NOK model and the difference in thickness you are noticing is simply due to the different manufacturers. This will not have an affect on the fit for the grease seal. The grease seals that are included in the Bearing Buddy Spindle Grease Seal Set # BB60005 are designed...

  • What Grease Seal Should I Be Using With A Bearing Buddy On a Boat Trailer?
    I recommend using double lip seals for a boat trailer. The 2 lips give extra protection from water getting into the hub. As the rear seal popped out of the hub it worries me that the grease seal was either installed improperly or that the surface is damaged. It may be best to inspect the mounting surface for any damage or if it is not the correct size. I typically recommend using the Bearing Buddy Bearing Protectors # BB1980A-SS that have an auto check feature. This will allow you to...

  • How Many Grease Seals Are Used With Bearing Buddy Bearing Protectors
    Bearing Buddy Bearing Protectors like the # BB1980A-SS install in place of the grease cap and need to match the measurement of your hub bore. A spindle should only have one grease seal. There should be no additional outer seal in your hub or spindle so nothing would prevent the grease from passing through. The Spindle Grease Seal Set for L44649 Inner Bearing and 1.980 Bearing Buddy # BB60005 you were looking at comes with 2 grease seals because it has one for each spindle on an axle.

We do not have a ring available by itself for this seal but the seal should fit the spindles on your trailer perfectly without one. Just to make sure you can also measure the spindle where the grease seal rides with a digital caliper. If you get a measurement of...

  • Double Lip Seal Recommendation for Trailer Hub on BTR Spindle for Marine Application
    For marine applications the best type of grease seal is a "double lip" seal which has a rubber spring that wraps around the seal to help hold it tight to the spindle so that it doesn't leak water. So for a double lip seal that fits the dimensions you need for your hub that fits on a BTR spindle you'll want the part # RG06-020. This has an inner diameter of 1.5 inch and an outer diameter of 1.987 inch which matches what you need.

  • Determining Bearing Buddy Grease Seal Set
    Based on your spindle measurement where the bearings ride it sounds like you have # L44649 for the bearings which means the correct Bearing Buddy seal set is part # BB60005. Although, with those bearings you should have a BTR spindle and the location where the seal rides should be 1.50 inches not 1.25 inches. If the seal location is 1.25 inches then it sounds like you have a BT8 spindle in which case you have # L44643 for the bearings which measure 0.99 inches and you need part # BB60001...

The # BB60005 has an inner diameter of 1.375 inches and an outer diameter of 1.980.
