The seals came with the kit.  I looked up my case nuWilson's book - it shows it to be a '70 case.  Thinking more about it, my cooler may be a different year as well.  Maybe they were 8/10...  not that I'm gonna pull it just to find out, mind you!  I think I had to have a smaller diam. on the cooler than the case.  Which would make it 8/10.  Sorry for thinking out loud. :)

Hopefully this weekend or next week, I can lift all four corners of my car and take care of the front brakes and rear end.  I am pulling right when braking (sometimes - at those times, I have about 1/2 pedal travel, other times, I have full pedal travel with no pulling), so I'll check what everyone has suggested (pads, discs, hoses, calipers, etc.).  The rear end is still stumping me.  I'll let yuns know what I find out.
