[DML] Re: Grady solution for weeping manual transmission axel seals

Basically, after years of rotation in the lip seal, the axle flange wears down a 
bit. Grady sells a thin metal collar that you (gently) hammer onto the flange. 
This beefs up the thickness enough to provide a good seal, not to mention if it 
ever wears down again you can cut it off and install another collar.

I bought it. Worked for me and it's much cheaper than a new axle flange. Word 
on the street is, if you install a new seal without replacing the flange or collar 
you'll have a leak anyway.
