Advantage of Double Lip Grease Seals Versus Single Lip


Is there any advantage of using double lip seal over single lip seals? I dont have easy lub axles. Mine calls for 01054-00 and the double seals are K-71-305-00. Thank you


Expert Reply:

A double lip seal is an upgrade over the single lip that uses a reinforcing spring behind the lip that does a better job of retaining the grease inside the hub and excluding water and road grime.

It is perfectly acceptable to use a double lip seal for non-ez lube spindles.
