Axle seal install

Question for the gang here..

I am installing new axle seals and I am wondering how far you seat them? Do they install flush or recessed a tad? I thought they bottomed out at some point and shoved one into the trans. Oops. So I have to get new ones and don't want to make the same mistake.

On that same note, which ujoint goes where? I didn't realize it when I pulled them out but one has a longer shaft than the other.

Just flush on the seal. No stop.
The long yoke goes on the left side. Now sitting here I'm second guessing myself.

Sweet. Thanks for that. Round two will be easier.

I am sure the longer one only fits in one or the other. I assume left is.. drivers?

I don't think you can put the longer yoke in the incorrect side. Flush as far as seal depth.

Yes.

Left and right is from the driver's perspective sitting in the driver's seat.
