Hup 20b rear axle

Hi all, would anyone have experience at rebuilding the rear axle bearings as my car has worn axles which allows movement in the roller bearings and the seals (felt) allow oil to leak into the brakes. The ends of the axels are parallel and also worn, allowing considerable wheel wobble. I am looking at making up new axles with taper ends and using ball races and modern seals. This involves considerable work but would make the car better to drive and having dry brakes would have to be a big plus. any ideas would be appreciated. Roger

Thanks Phil,

I have to admit I didn't read the full thread. Some very good information, however, how do I remove the Sleeve for the bearings? How do you retain the seals and bearings in the axle tubes? Any thoughts on reclaiming the hubs to suit tapered axles?

Roger
