fRONT PINION SEAL

I picked up front and back pinion seals for my wrangler and I think they gave me the wrong seals. I have a 99' sport 4.0l 3speed auto with the dana 44 in the rear. I started on the front seal first got everything of went to put the new seal back in and WTF they don't even look the same or fit at all. I ordered them from O'rielly auto parts and the part number they gave me for the front is 710461. I looked up the part number on the website and sure enough it comes up as a pinion seal for a front dana 30 .

the one they gave me for the rear is part number pt 5778 and its for a danna 44 and it looks just like the one I pulled from the front danna 30. Has anybody ran into this problem I'm confused

i run into this all the time, pinion seals are common on all trucks and i do a ton of them. seems like the part numbers get confused from the stores or something, the dealer seems to have the right one the first time though.

I figured it out I looked up seal numbers through autozone and a dana 44 and a dana 30 use the same part numbers so I guess I have to go back to O'rielly tomorrow to swap out the seals.

If I remember correctly if you tell them that you need a pinion seal for a 97 D30 you will get the right one. You got the late model seal that they changed.
