Specs:

  • Application: trailer spindles with LM48548 or L68149 inner bearing and Bearing Buddy models with 1.980", 1.968" or 2.562" hub bore
  • Grease seal dimensions:

The high-quality seal in this unique kit is made of neoprene, a flexible, synthetic rubber that remains stable even at high temperatures.

By using this grease seal set along with your Bearing Buddy bearing protector, you can be sure that the seal and ring always have adequate grease for fluid operation.

Bearing Buddy Spindle Seal Set

Note: If your axle spindles already have permanent, stainless steel surface rings, you do not need this spindle seal system.

Trying to find the right parts was exhausting, going to auto parts store after store. Should've came here first and saved lots of frustration and time. It worked great and was just what I needed to get my bearings and Buddys back on. I'm back on the road with my 1985 Boat trailer.




by:

Perfect fit




by:

The addition of the metal ring keeps the hub seated slightly further out on the spindle. This caused me to have to really crank down on the crown nut, just to be able to get the cotter pin in. Of course this kept the wheel from spinning freely, and surely would have fried the bearings.
I tore it out and replaced it with the normal seals.

Don't bother with these. The double-lip seals that come with the e-trailer bearing kits are just fine.




by:

My galvanized boat trailer was made 34 years ago. Thru the years my stockpile of hub grease seals had become exhausted. I contacted the original manufacture's parts department, who were very helpful, but couldn't come up with my seal. They didn't recognize their old kit number from 34 years ago. I tied local stores for seals in my area to no avail. I then went online and found etrailer.com. They had the Buddy Bearing Seal Set #BB60002 which was exactly what I needed and like what I bought from the original manufacture 34 years ago. I will be going to etrailer.com for all my trailer needs.




by:

My boat trailer axle spindle was damaged seriously on one trip. With this spindle seal, it just work for me. I don't need to replace my axle. And it works great.

Still good

I was skeptical, I’ve tried many things to get my axle seals from leaking (my axles are worn and actually need to be replaced. But replacing boat axles is easier said than done) and for the last seven years they’ve leaked and I’ve repacked and replaced my bearings every year. Last year I replaced the axle seal with these Buddy bearing seal kit.
To my surprise, I had no water in my 4 hubs this spring from last year. I definitely recommend them.
Of course I had to add the stainless Buddy Bearing hubs covers as well...




by:

Shipped fast. Arrived on time. Saved 40% over other vendors. Would buy again from eTrailer. Excellent service and communication.


Comments
My 2 cents.. While I get the concept, there are some things to look out for with this kit. I have had the same boat trailer for 5 years and trailer a lot. Never had a wheel bearing fail in 30 years. I have also been an auto mechanic for 30 years as well. Since the seals surfaces were getting a little rough and not sealing very well anymore, I decided to try the spindle kit. Couple things didnt work out. 1 the ID on the rings fit too tight on the seal shoulder on the spindle and and caused a none solid surface for the inner bearing to butt up against and made tightening the spindle nut was tricky. Had a little bit of a squishing effect. It also moved the nut out so I could only fit one half of the codder pin through the spindle. Drove it 5 miles and lost the bearing buddie on one side. Rechecked the spindle nut and was too loose. readjusted and drove again and lost another bearing buddie. Apparently this kit was not a good fit for my particular spindles. Same trailer etc I have been working with for years. They loosened up when driving and the wheel knocking back and forth ver every bump knocks the bearing buddie off. Going back to speedy sleeves and double lipped seals. Anyway, thought I would pass this along to save someone else some trouble.

by:

Ended up changing to other type of spindles so can grease from inside bearing to outside. Buggy bearings always seem to be either leaking water in of grease out. I will never use buddy bearing setup again if I can help it.




by:

a year later and the bearings have no water in them




by:

Installed the other day. Went down and dipped the trailer in the ocean and brought the boat home. The grease is still the right color and no spatters on the inside rim of the wheel.
Looks good so far.




by:

I had a good experience with my order.




by:

Work as advertised, removed the BB the other day to inspect, no sign of water intrusion. BB coupled with the double lip grease seals are the ticket to long bearing life.




by:

This Bearing Buddy seal kit is a great concept on paper. This kit may work well on highway only applications. I used this kit on a boat trailer application and it was a disaster. The first problem encountered is this kit eliminates the best feature of a E-Z Lube 3500# trailer axle. That feature is the ability to pump grease into the hub without any disassembly. The second shortcoming of this design is the entire inner seal assembly is centered and retained by a tiny single O-ring. The trailer this kit was installed on has disc brakes. After one road trip the O-rings shrunk /cracked causing the inner seal race to loose contact with the axle. This caused the grease to leak out all over the rotors and calipers. That is not worst part. It was later determined that the seal kit did not even last long enough on the first trip to function as described. Upon teardown of all four hubs it was clear the hubs flooded with water at the first launching of the boat. Between the mess made on the trailer brake hardware and the water soaked hubs I can not recommend this seal kit for boat trailer applications.




by:

Product works like it should. No more loosing grease on the inside of my hubs.




by:

Parts were as ordered. Very satisfied. Part of the order was back ordered so it held up the entire. Would like to be notified so we could split the order if needed. Linda did help with getting me the parts l needed and left the back order for later. Thanks very much.




by:

Bearing Buddy products are high quality and a great price and made in the U.S.A., I use them on all of my trailers. etrailer.com has an great web-site and fast shipping.




by:

Used on 1976 Ranger trailer went on great and used same slots and pin when I tightened the bearings. I also used Bearing Buddies with this seal. No grease inside my wheels and definitely an upgrade from 1976 standards




by:

Bearing buddy spindle sleeve savers were easy to install and should work great. I should have purchased the seal removal tool to get the old seal out, but even without, I was able to replace the inner seals in less than an hour. We'll see how long they last. Extremely satisfied with etrailer customer service. One part was missing from the package and they sent me a replacement quickly.




by:

Perfect fit




by:

Fair price knowledgeable people & quick shipment




by:

I looked locally for the bearing and seal sleeve I needed but nobody carried it. I called Etrailer and got Ian on the line. With only dimensions from the bearing and the seal from online research Ian was able to match up the parts I needed. Fast, intelligent and helpful service. I will go directly to etrailer next time and save me all the phone calls and running around.




by:

All the parts stores in my area could not find what I needed including the RV stores. This was exactly what I needed great product.

B60002 seal kit. Used these a few times now on 2 different trailers. Guys have no want to replace a worn axle due to seal surfaces being worn and these bought them some extra time. When nothing else sealed right, these did the trick! Than you

  • Cant Install Rotor All the Way on Trailer Spindle Using Bearing Buddy Grease Seal Set
    It will be a very tight fit, especially if you have previously wiped all the grease from the spindles prior to installing the rotors. What I believe is happening is the tight fit is preventing you from easily pushing the rotor all the way onto the spindle. If you still have a free seal assembly not installed in a rotor yet you can do a dry test fit on a spindle to see if it seats in the proper position at all. If it doesn't then it is possible that for some reason the Bearing Buddy grease...

  • Bearing Buddy Spindle Seal Kit For Hub Using L68149 Inner Bearing
    The Bearing Buddy Grease Seal Kit you referenced, part # BB60002 would be the appropriate replacement seal for your hub. It is compatible with your L68149 inner bearing and is the proper replacement for your existing 10-19 seal. The two most common causes of seal failure are 1) Using a single lip seal instead of a double lip and 2) Overfilling the hub (or a combination of the two.) A double-lip seal incorporates a spring into the seal, providing a tighter seal around the spindle. To fill...

  • How do Bearings and Hub Seals Install on a Boat Trailer Hub
    The inner bearing will not ride on the rubber o-ring. The bearing will ride on the spindle and the seal goes just to the outside of it and keeps the grease from leaking out of the hub. To see how it all goes together check out the video I attached.

  • Compatibility of the Bearing Buddy Grease Seal Set with Posi-Lube Spindles
    To make sure the Bearing Buddy Grease Seal Kit, # BB60002, will be compatible with your Posi-Lube spindles, a measurement on the spindle where this seal will sit. The inner diameter of the steel ring for this set measures 1.377 inches. Your spindle will have to fall within this measurement for this seal kit to fit. I have attached a diagram of where you will need to measure on your spindle to find the correct measurement.

  • Using Bearing Buddy # BB60002 Grease Seal Kit on Spindle With Damaged Grease Seal Journal Surface
    If the seal journal surface on your spindle is damaged to the point where the grease seal compatible with your hub won't contain the grease in the hub, the only acceptable way to proceed is to replace the spindle or the axle. Because welding replacement spindles into place is a delicate operation requiring lots of skill to get correct, in many cases its simpler to replace the axle. We have a limited selection of trailer axles available, in order to determine if anything we have on hand...

  • What is Purpose of O-Ring that Comes with Spindle Grease Seal Set BB60002
    If you check out the diagram I attached you'll see how the O-ring of the Bearing Buddy Grease Seal set part # BB60002 installs. It's location is designed to compress between the seal ring and grease seal to help prevent the seal from leaking or failing. With Bearing Buddies people tend to put too much grease in the hubs with them so this acts as a way to help brace the seal and prevent failure.

  • Where Does O-Ring Install When Using Bearing Buddy Grease Seal BB60002
    If you use the O-ring of the Bearing Buddy grease seal kit you'll want to use the attached diagram to assemble everything. This came straight from Bearing Buddy so hopefully it clears up any confusion. Not every application uses these but if you are using a Bearing Buddy they are recommended since they end up with more pressure in the hub than applications without. Seals do tend to have issues randomly and sometimes its hard to have an exact reason. If you are using a Bearing Buddy typically...

    You will want to match up the old seal with the number stamped on the seal. Each seal number is an indication of a different size seal. The correct # 171255 seal that you will need is Grease Seal - Double Lip, part # 58846. This seal includes the spring that you referred to.

It is slightly smaller but should flex enough to fit and prevent the leakage you've been experiencing.

  • Bearing Buddy and Spindle Grease Seal Set Recommendation for 3,500 Pound Axle Trailer
    Typically, 3,500 pound axles use an inner bearing # L68149. However, it is a good idea to double check that this is the inner bearing on your trailer. For a trailer that has an inner bearing of L68149 with a 1.980 Bearing Buddy, you will want to use the Spindle Grease Seal Set # BB60002. It looks like you previously ordered the Titan Disc Brake Kit with actuating coupler. This kit uses the L68149 inner bearing. For these disc brakes with the 1.980 Bearing Buddy, the # BB60002 grease...

    This does sound like the seal is no longer doing its job properly, so I do suggest replacing it. If this is becoming a constant problem, I suggest going with something like the Bearing Buddy Spindle Grease Seal Set # BB60002, though I do need to say that this will fit trailer spindles with LM48548 or L68149 inner bearings and Bearing Buddy models with 1.980", 1.968" or 2.562" hub bore.

  • Best Grease Seal For a 3,500LB Axle Which Uses a 10-19 Seal
    The Spindle Grease Seal Set # BB60002 is currently our only upgraded seal that fits the 1.719" x 2.565" dimensions. We do not carry a unitized seal as Dexter does not manufacture one. This spindle seal set uses high-quality neoprene seals which ride on consistently greased stainless steel rings for easy, free movement. This will greatly improve the life of the seals. It is recommended to use these seals with the Bearing Buddy Bearing Protectors # BB1980A-SS to ensure adequate grease in the hub.

You do want a tight seal on your hubs so that the grease is sealed in and water, dust, debris, etc., is kept out, so it might just be that he's having trouble getting it seated properly.
