Default 97 Xj/C8.25: Axle Seal Depth?

I have installed new National 8835S seals as is required for my C8.25. However, my FSM does not indicate a value for the installation depth of the seal in the axle tube. Rather, the FSM states "When the (installation) tool contacts the axle tube, the seal is installed to the correct depth."

I used a 1-13/16 socket and a flat steel plate to install my new rear axle seals. I currently have them flush with the outer edge of the axle tube.

The old ones were not installed with equal penetration depths or, square with the axle tube, so I do not have a good reference. They were close to the axle edge but, slightly recessed.

Please respond if you know where I need to locate the 8835S.

Rick

They need to be located in the tube.

It's not as critical as you might think, unless you axle shaft is showing signs of grooves where the seal rides.
