Rock Assault™ 9″ Seal Housing Kit

Friday, June 17th, 2011
Trail-Gear’s 9″ Seal Housing Kit is machined from billet aluminum, has three o-rings on the outersurface of the seal housing, and has a double seal on the inside. The three outer o-rings keepthe outer portion of the seal housing sealed up so that no fluid can leak or flow between theaxle tube and the seal housing itself. The seal housing is tapered on the inside so that the axleshaft is lined up with the seal housing as it is installed to prevent damage to the seals or sealhousing. The seal housing itself is secured in place with a set screw so that it cannot move or bepushed out of place when the axle shafts are installed. The inside of the seal housing has twoseals installed to ensure that even while rock crawling on your side or racing at high speeds, nofluid leaks through or bypasses our seals. This will keep your fluid in your differential where itbelongs, and not on your breaks and tires where it can create a dangerous situation. Read More→

The Ford 9” axle is the go-to axle choice for applications as varied as drag racing and desert racing.  While short sprints down the drag strip do not heat up the differential excessively, extended use under the harsh conditions found in desert racing, King of the Hammers-type events, short course racing, and road racing can result in increased pressure that pushes the pinion seal out of the front of the case.  Samco Fabrication has a simple, yet elegant solution in their new bolt-on 9” seal retainer.
