I had a leaky wheel cylinder on the rear left side so I took things apart to find I have two wear grooves, the original groove and the double lip groove. I had installed a double lip seal and when I put the hub on, the outter lip must have folded under when it hit the original groove and of course I couldn't see it since I was installing the hub/drum combo. I guess now I'll sleeve it and install a single lip seal to avoid it happening again. In the future I'm installing a single lip in those cases where I can't see the lip to avoid this kind of thing. Bummer!
