Axle seal quality OEM vs Aftermarket

I have a D35 rear axle and have replaced one side twice and am now having to replace the other side and am looking for the very best seal I can get so I can redo both and be done (for awhile). Suggestions? Is OEM from the dealer the best? The autozone ones seem weak and cheap and am looking for something bombproof. Thanks for the input!

You used "bombproof" and "Dana 35" in the same thread. Time-bomb and Dana 35 would be more appropriate. (In stock form) I would try the ones from NAPA. I only buy washer fluid from autozone.

Try to find some SKF seals, those are very good quality and rugged too.

When you have a choice, buy American.
