    your truck should not have 954’s, I would put at minimum 1250lb in front and variables in the rear.

    Portal Axle Seal Help (in driveway now)

    The old seal is an aftermarket seal, the new seal is the POS 2 piece seal, the rubber is a dust boot that goes on the halfshaft itself after the seal is installed. That new seal does not look correct, the seal should be thinner IIRC...but I won’t and don’t use the 2 piece. I only use the OEM...
