Default Dana 30 axle seal?

I removed the carrier today and saw the seal next to the berring was bowed out. I attempted to pull it out, but I tore it in half. I want to buy another one but don't know the name of it. In the attached picture its the orange seal. What do I call this thing?


Thanks

If you don't have or can't get the tool to put that seal in, find a socket that's the same size as the outer diameter of the seal, get yourself a few looooong extensions, and drive it in from the opposite knuckle. Sounds hack, but I've done it several times and it works great!

left over :) lol... the orange is the factory silicone, they used it to seal/lube while the tube is pressed into the housing. That has nothing to do with you axle seal.
