Ohhh, gotcha, you were referring to smoothing the shaft itself for the seal. I think I misread it the first time.

question about the seals? i looked up the seal from napa # (11800) thats referenced on here, as well as the one from quadratech refrenced in another thread and they seem to be very diff. the one from napa looks like a thin o ring type seal and the one from quadratech that is recommended looks like a sealed bearing type oil seal any idea which one is right?

I'm pretty sure this has been cover numerous times in the thread, anyhow...

There is no seal on the passenger side differential with a 2 piece shaft, the seal is down by the disconnect , so when you install the one piece shaft you now need a seal on the passenger side diff... the axle tube isn't machine for a seal there (so there is no lip) in the tube, so the napa 11800 fits perfecly in there, just tap it in a 1/4 -1/2 inch or so...

Trust us, just get the Napa 11800, it'll work... There is also no need for a seal down by the disconnect now...

He speaks the truth the NAPA 11800 (custom seal,kinda) fits perfect in the passenger side it is different from the (stock) drivers side . I did this MOD and it works

thank you!

i would like to thank jeep forums and everyone who answered my questions over the last few weeks, today i did the solid axle conversion and with the exception of a couple small brain fart's that where totaly my fault, the job went great, i pulled the carrier seated the new seal NAPA 11800!!!! , and replaced the drivers side seal while i had it apart, none of this would of been possible with out all the great info i found on here. the research i was able to do was irreplaceble!!

Just because I plan on doing this myself in a couple weeks, the plastic "slinger", is it really needed? Not sure if $8 shipping is worth it for a $2.99 part if it isn't needed. Could I just put a seal on the end of the tube and call it good?

Yes, Alloy USA makes axles seals for then end of the tubes. They have zerk fittings and help to keep water and mud out of the tubes.
