D44 front axle seal

I have a 2004 Rubicon with factory lockers. Are the axle seals different on a factory locker? I found two pats numbers 5014852AA 5014852AB. What's the difference? ----" UPDATE " AB is a new version. Also Jeep says to order 2-5.00 axle guides. Don't know what they are till they come in but were thinking they go in the end of the axle tube. This will help to keep the axle more centered while sliding them in.

Sorry, yea I meant 5014852aa 5014852ab. So the 5014852ab is a newer version? And replaces the AA? Because the dealer gave me 5014852AB. Thanks

be careful sliding the shaft back in. if you nick the seal the new one will leak. you have to lift the shaft over the seal on the way in.

This is what my dealer got me. It goes on the splined end to guide it through the tube into the seal. Hope it helps they were 5 bucks each.
