Question:

the bearing buddies were the correct size. The one issue I do have is that the grease seal that was shipped did not fit the spindle, the interior dimension was too big. Based on the spindle width and the existing bearings I had (L44649) all indications led me to believe 1.06 was the correct size which it appears to be. Just not the grease seal. Can you send me the correct seal?

If the 10-9 grease seal that came with the Trailer Idler Hub Assembly part # AKIHUB-440-2-2K did not fit then odds are you need the Double Lip Grease Seal part # 34823 which measures 1.249" inner diameter (ID) and 1.983" outer diameter (OD). However, in order to confirm this you need to measure the outer diameter of the spindle where the grease seal seats with a digital caliper like part # 301-17068 to the nearest thousandth of an inch.
