Hi this is my first post on a great forum I found. I have a 2002 tracker zr2 4dr. My rear axle is leaking at the hub. I see some places there is a listing for an inner seal and an outer seal. The auto part store is not sure...can anyone explain to me where both seals are located if there are two? Thank you very much.
yes, thats the retainer i mentioned. but if you're not planning on replacing your bearings and your leak is gear oil, dont worry about the retainer. it involves alot more work, part and equipment as you will need to cut off the collar and have the bearing pressed out in order to get the retainer off.

I was going to do the rear brakes on my '02 tracker, but the right rear brake has grease in it. So, I'm going to have to replace the outer seal. After grinding off the ABS ring and collar, I presume the bearing will have to replaced because metal from the grinding will find its way into the bearing. Is that correct? Also, if the inner bearing leaks gear lube, does it travel through the bearing and grease and leak out of the grease seal? It seems to be a poor design to have to grind the ring and collar off just to fix an grease seal.
