Thanks, Scott for the quick response. I sent a separate email to your sacc email which you can discard.
I just want to clarify that I was going to eliminate the grease seals, but the inner bearing shield, which my car didn’t have when I disassembled it. It sounds like a lot of cars don’t have them. I’ll keep them anyway at this point
I will get everything tightened up and recheck the clearance.
