Huh I thought you piloted boats?!?!?! am I wrong!!!! ;)
 
After the state of the first one I did I thought I'de better repalce them all, more as preventative maintainance. Done the other rear one during the week, so just the two front to do.
 
Was out that way today:D , I will post the pics of the "mud run" the ****ers have made up by Lake Alwen. Would have been nice to get pics of them doing it so I could report some.

RTC3511 is a double lipped seal, I think its a Defender fitment as standard, it replaces the standard seal that keeps grease in but doesnt do a very good job of keeping water out.

I just bought a 'kit' off fleabay, probably the cheapest parts they could put together.
 
This is from an American site

Tech Tip: we recommend using RTC3511 hub seals even if you don't eliminate the axle case seal. This is a double lip seal and a vast improvement over the seal currently specified by Land Rover. When Land Rover added the axle case seal they used a much less effective hub seal because the wheel bearing now specified only requires wheel bearing grease for the bearings. Wheel bearing grease is very easy to seal in because it does't go anywhere ie: it doesn't flow. The problem is the current specified seal isn't very effective at sealing things out such as water - hence the risk premature of wheel bearing failure! When installing RTC3511 hub seals, recess them 3mm into the hub or you will get a false reading on your wheel bearing preload.
