Inner Axle seal

I have a 98 Grand Cherokee Limited with a 4.0. I need to replace my inner axle seals. I have researched how to do it. My question is did they make only 1 type of front differential for the 98 Grand Cherokee so all the inner axle seals are the same? I went to the dealership and they showed me 1 part. When I went back they gave me a part number 4874477 that matches up with the ones I have seen everywhere else, but doesnt match the seal the dealership showed me. I want to know so I can order the part and do the job in 1 day. I also dont want to pay the price of the dealership part. My front axle has U-joints instead of CV boots. The part the dealership showed me looks like it goes to a Dana 44, but from what I read the 98 Grand Cherokee came with a Dana 30.

Zj's all had dana 30's in the front. Any reputable auto parts store will have one. You dont have to go to a dealership.

Ujoint/Cv axles run the same seals. They are identical in that way
