Question about axle seal surface problem

This is on a Dana 60. I've replaced this seal before and eventually the shoes get soaked in gear lube after a few thousand miles, maybe sooner and I don't notice it. There is a lip on the very edge of the surface and a couple very shallow grooves near the back. Actually the middle of the surface feels pretty good. The new seal fits snugly onto the surface. What can I do?? I use this truck to haul heavy loads occasionally and I need the back brakes to function perfectly. Thanks, -BA
