Dana 30 - 30 spline axle shaft inner seals same as D44 Rubi??

Changing out the inner axle seals on a Dana 30 with 30 spline axles.

First go was a failure but I bought new seals for a Dana 30 from NAPA......when they leaked I realized the seals were for the 27 spline - smaller diameter axles.

Now I am having a hard time finding the seals for the 30 spline axles. I can order them online but shipping is as much as the price of the seals.

I read on one site that the D44 Rubicon inner seals were the same ones.
I can probably go to a local parts store and get them, but I first I want to make sure that they interchange with the Dana 30 - 30 spline.

Can anyone confirm this or have a part number?

Yes, just buy the seals for a TJ Rubicon Dana 44 from the parts store.

Should be an easy one, don't worry about the part number. Just tell them Jeep Wrangler '03-'06 Rubicon Dana 44. They'll have it or get it.

I wonder if this is why mine have always leaked a little bit. Both with my stock LPD30 and replacement HPD30, I'm assuming they were always running OEM Inner seals for 27 Spline and I have been running the 30 Spline inners for years... Hmmm...

This One?

I couldn't locate the seals thru any local parts houses for my Rubi 44. I think it was the dealer or online only. Good luck. I think I got mine from Yukon gear.

Yea I had that problem even with the D30 27 spline. I was in Yorktown, Va at the time. I had to order them online, too.

I had to go to a Dodge/chrysler jeep dealer for this part. I have never had any luck with local parts stores. On the plus side they are usually available within 24 hours.

Jeep took another piece of my finger today...
