rear wheel bearing/seal dimensions

Wheel bearings - 2 x 6204 - 20x47x14
LHS Seal - 1 x 26x47x7
Cush Hub - 1 x 6205 - 25x52x15
Cush Seal - 1 x 35x52x7

Seal widths is not critical, so alternates may be available.

If you want to beef up the cush hub, which I did after a couple of failures, a double row 3205 fits, maybe just gotta sort the seal. There is a description in the latter pages of my build thread, starting here:

And for those of you with 2007 and older versions I added the rear axle lock nut part number so you don't have to mess with the cotter pin. See my other post for part numbers for the rear cush drive bearing and seal.
