Rear main seal SBC/327

Going to be replacing the rear main seal soon and was just wondering what everyone was using and what is a good quality seal to use? I havent had the motor running long and it was leaking a tiny bit when i first started it back in january, the motor sat for a good while before starting it and i believe the seal just hardened or shrank over time, it only leaks when when i wind it up a little or driving around,i dont drive it that much because of this,I have noticed a squealing nose when i rev it up also, i hope its not a bearing! has anyone ever heard of the seal making a squealing noise?It sounds like a belt squealing but I am pretty sure its not a belt.....
