View Full Version : Front hubs leaking again...

My 97 D1's front hubs were leaking about 2 years ago. Now leaking again. I drained and filled them with a bag of grease with some sort of sealer in it before.

Anyone know what this was? Bought it at a LR shop now out of business in Troy, NH. Should have bought the whole lot of them.

I was under the impression that no sealant was needed when giving it the "LR One Shot" grease.

The question that remains is how you like sealant mucking up the joints inside the swivel housing?

I recall reading somewhere on the net an aftermarket swivel housing stiffener bolted on the the outside of the joint making it stiffer and less prone to leaks. Anybody see the same?

Did you use the genuine grease designed for the swivel balls? I have heard of aftermarket grease causing leaks becasue it's not quite the same. I don't know if thats an issue...just thought I would offer my two cents.
