Trail Safe Inner Axle Seal (Pair) (Front Solid Axle ONLY)
Deflection gaps in the Brand X seal are
the result of the spring clip opening. Fluid is allowed to bypass the
seal lip through these deflection gaps. The result is a leak.
Figure (B): The Trail Safe seal lip is totally
supported by a garter spring. The spring applies constant force over
360º, not allowing any deflection gaps. This means no fluid leaks.
Figure (C): The spring clip opens up under deflection
and no longer supports the seal lip. A deflection gap will allow fluid
to bypass the seal, resulting in a leak.
Figure (D): The Trail Safe Inner Axle Seal uses a
garter spring which offers 360º of support around the seal lip during
deflection. This stops fluid from bypassing the seal lip. No leaks.
Figure (E): Brand X's attempt to seal the O.D. of the seal. Generally the material is scraped off during installation, resulting in a leak.
Figure (F): The O.D. of the Trail Safe Seal is 100% rubber coated so that it forms a complete static surface seal resulting in zero leaks.
