Bought these tube seals, may regret it?

Bought these (Alloy USA) tube seals from a friend, for my YJ. I've switched to XJ shafts. Will be replacing the actual seals (rubber).

But have since been told that the YJ tube seals have a narrower shoulder (where the zerk fitting is) than the standard ones. But googling seems to show that the seals i have have a narrower shoulder?

Will be pulling the shafts this weekend to actually try fitting them, but until then thought i'd post this as a question.

Does that mean the shafts won't seat all the way down? Take a small tape measure and see how much room your have from the inner C to the shoulder on the axle shaft then compare it to the shoulder of the seals you have.

I have a jeep...and it is modified...I win.

The shoulder on those look a little smaller than the ones I use on my YJ.
