I use JK 5/8 fronts .062 axle for my RP. Does anyone have a source/part number for harder o rings? The originals are fairly soft.

You might try fingernail polish on them or check out a hardware store plumbing dept.

The bearing frt's are for 3/32 axles and that what I use.   Diana the Nitrite o'ring are about as hard as your going to get try coating with super glue

There are Teflon o-rings but I doubt they stretch very far....

My concerns about the standard o ring fronts were unfounded. The car handled fairly well and I had no front wheel issues.
