I used the same retainer plate on mine, as long as its not too rusted you should be fine. Just make sure you keep the orientation of the plate and bearings the same as before you replaced them and you should be fine. Also, i needed to put a small amount of rtv around the rubber seal before i installed mine... first time i did it without the rtv and it leaked about 5000 miles later. good luck
