Inner Tube Seal Question Rubicon Dana 44

Hello JF, so I need to change my inner tube seals on my front axle. My jeep is a 04 Rubicon so it would be done on a D44. I went to the dealership to get my seals and they sold me two seals (might as well do both) but they also sold me these white plastic "guides". I read alot of different write ups on how to do the seals but I havn't seen one use these white guides. Anyone know what they are for?

They matched up the part with my VIN.

Thank you for reading.

the white plastic rings go on the axle at the inner spline end to keep the axle centered so you don't rip the new seals, I just did mine in my 04 Rubicon last weekend.

Consider Obama the lesson many in this country need to learn, the rest of us just have to pay for it!

Do they stay in there or are they just for installation?

slide them over the splines of the axle, they tend to shove the dirt and crap laying in the axle tube against the new seal.... unless of course you take the extra time to clean it all out.

I want your factory 07-up take-off/thrown out JK front/rear Lower Control Arms! Bent ones are perfect also as long as the bushings and cold cut rings are in good shape/useable

did mine not to long ago too and they sold me them things. I didnt end up using them because I didnt have the axle shafts in when I did the install. I dont have the special press thing or whatever. So I have a few long extensions and a socket I used through the tube to press them in. Worked perfect...and just be careful when you slide the axle shaft back in, if you go this route

Yeah and when I did my inners I cleaned the tubes and also bought a set of Superior Axle outer axle seals. They are pretty nice IMO, should help protect the inners better
