I am replacing my rear drum brakes with disc and had to remove the axles. The retaining plate on the axle was slightly bent and i did not want to reinstall it that way. So I bought a new part. The replacement part is a bit different than the original (see pic) so I'm hesitant to make the change. It appears that the new axle flange has an indentation designed on it so a full seal on the axle tube would not occur. I'm thinking of just reinstalling the lightly bent original axle flange and not replacing the bearing which appears to be in good shape. Any advice??
