Wasn't the Fast Cars front axle based on a BMW series 3 design?

Geometry yes. Parts apparently not.

Progress, but no cigar yet. Got seals that'll work. National 1174. Slightly thicker, but there's room on the shaft for that. Outer bearing looked brand new. Inner, now that I pulled the seal and got a look at it, not so much. And, my (bad) luck is holding... PN I have is LM1179 which parts houses are saying doesn't show in their systems and I've not found it on line. Awaiting Terry to see if I have the wrong #?

Anyone else know a good PN for the inner bearing?

Told my folks I'd not be coming today so if I can't get bearings today, I should be able to tomorrow.

Getting there, one step at a time.

Terry returned my text. PN was wrong; car's back together and loaded to go.

A trick I have learned over the years when looking for grease seals. Measure then OD of the shaft the seal rides on.
The diameter of the shaft will be close the part number. ( This was true for National/CR seals) Example a 2.137 diameter shaft would have a seal number of 2137XX.
