Which parts for an axle seal replacement

Read through several threads and will be replacing a rear axle seal on a 2004 Grand Cherokee next weekend.... and want to make sure i get the right bearing / seal this week.

Looking on autozone / napa they seem to call the parts different things ... and have axle ID requirements.

Straight 6 2WD Grand Cherokee .... does this seem like the right parts?

Seal part number at autozone:

Part Number: 2146
Alternate Part Number: 2146

Bearing part number at autozone:

Part Number: SET36
Alternate Part Number: A-36

Thanks in advance.....

Axle seals/bearings are the same for all WJ rear axles -- the 44a and 35 use the same parts.

I can't verify the numbers as I bought mine at Advanced Auto.

I bought the SKF BR9 on rockauto. I know it was the right on and came with the retainer collar. It sells now for $24.79. The seal I use is the 2146. I think the ones I bought were Timken and worked well. They are about $6 on rockauto.
