HUNDREDS of places, from Summit racing to Randys ring and pinion, NAPA.
You can do it yourself if you have the ability/tools. Just 'stake' the pinion nut and pinion with a punch. And after you install the seal and re-tighten the nut, you can match up the stake marks, and that should get you back to the right torque on the crush sleeve.
The 'thing' with installing a seal on a 'used' shaft (of whatever it is..) is DON'T have the LIP ride right in the same location if there is a groove worn in.
Either don't pound it in ALL the way or maybe a little more.
Depending on the "wear" on the shaft a new seal can leak again if it rides in the same groove.
(I just don't understand why seal makers don't make replacement seals where the "lip" is either higher or lower to NOT ride in THAT groove)
That's another reason why people just keep adding lube.. It's just a pain to re-in$tall another NEW seal just to have it leak again.
