    Driveshaft Seal

    What are the differences between the rad4 and the skat seal nowadays?

    And were do you buy a Rad4? I can only find the skat in the store.

    Im trying to decide which one to get

    The Rad 4 Racing seal is the original seal which was then copied by Skat. The differences are that the Rad 4 seal has the shaft skimmed to offer a clean true surface for the bearing and seals to run on which is a 5 min job in a lathe. The Skat unit runs the bearing and seals direct on your crappy old shaft and they last accordingly. Rad 4 offer rebuild kits for only the cost of post and handling to original purchasers.
    The Rad 4 unit also runs the best lubrication path as the bearing has a hole below the zerk to give grease direct access to the rollers.

    But then I am a little Biased, I like the Rad 4 Racing ones so much....I brought the company!! Hey was that not a shaver add??

    Hope this helps.
