Since I mentioned lube before install I would like to mention another thought re. that...

I assume that once the bolt is torqued the lubrication is not that much in play until something moves the shaft. The friction type can be catagorized as dry or an assparity type bond.

I'll agree with Souk.. better not to damage the seals or scratch bores or shafts. I also think that having lube around helps the cones force the shaft ends out instead of "binding". I did buff the cone surfaces to try and get ride of those ridges a bit...

For many of these types of situations you can ask people and get a wide varity of opinions. I'm not a professional mechanic.
