A front double swivel hub seal and gasket kit for the Land Cruiser 80 Series, manufactured by Karsons, contains swivel seals & gaskets to repair both front swivel hubs, even comes with a selection of shims.

Please Note:
This kit is as per the Toyota designed kit seal kit 04434-60051, however, we would strongly recommend adding the small inner axle seal (2 per vehicle and Genuine Toyota) to prevent oil flowing from the diff past the half shaft. May also be a good idea to replace the two wheel bearing oil seals and swivel bearings if needed, these parts are listed in Related parts if you wish to add them.

It is very common for the swivels housings to leak oil, this usually ends up with oil on the wheel/tyre which is an MOT failure, so this kit will have the very best parts to ensure a complete and thorough repair for both front hubs. In the questions section, we have added some advice.

Karson's are a manufacturer of 4WD drivetrain components of which hub seals for all makes are their speciality. They are the actual manufacturers for many of the leading brands that choose to use the Karson's seals within their own kits. With this kit, we know that the products are to OE specification and using exceptionally good quality materials and fit.

Kit Contains;

  • 2x Swivel seal hub kits (felt/rubber/steel seals & retainers)
  • 2x Stub axle gaskets - (Large gasket - fits stub axle to knuckle swivel hub)
  • 2x Stub axle gaskets - (fits behind large 8 hole dust seal)
  • 2x Front Free-wheeling / Flange to main hub gaskets
  • 2x Stub axle dust seals - Large dust seal with metal shield and rubber insert
  • 1x Selection of preload swivel bearing Shims

Product Reviews for Karsons Double Front Swivel Hub Seal & Gasket Kit

Questions & Answers for Karsons Double Front Swivel Hub Seal & Gasket Kit

On the end of the axle are the round swivels where the bearing cups fit, these are rusted but welded as part of the axle, do I need to replace the axle to stop leaks?
Corrosion to these round swivels is very common on this Toyota setup unlike a LandRover for example where they unbolt off, the Toyota axle swivels seals are relatively crude as they are only designed to hold back hub grease and not oil like the LandRover, therefore, a good cleanup with some coarse emery and apply a thin smear of grease to the balls before assembling the swivel seals and the axle should be fine.

Why does oil run out onto the wheels?
The main hubs in the CV joint area etc are only filled with grease NOT oil or a form of liquid grease. The swivel hub seals behind the two half moon plates, felt, steel ring and the rubber flat seal are only designed to hold back grease, hence why the pitting or corrosion as mentioned earlier isn't such an issue.
When oil from the differential is allowed to flow into the hub then it contaminates the grease make a "liquid type" solution, the swivel seals not being designed to cope with this then allows the diff oil to flow out the bottom and onto the wheel.
So, a lot of the time it can be the small axle oil seal which seals the axle casing inside to the half shaft that "could" be allowing oil to seep past and into the hub contaminating the grease.

Remember, good mechanical advice is to always look for the reason for ANY failure and not just the obvious.....in this case obviously oil is running out past the round swivel seals but is it in fact the small axle seal that really causing the issue?....these are the question that you or the mechanic need to look out for else you could be doing the whole job again, another reason why this kit is great as it contains all the seals and bearings that you will need.
