Upgrading to solid single axle shaft instead of disconnect type, few questions??

I understand that the new solid axle shaft does not need the seal at the disconnect gear housing on the brake side.... There is also a bearing/seal type thing with teeth at the disconnect housing on the differential side.... Should this be removed as well?? Hope it's clear as to what I am talking about, thanks

The 1-piece axle doesn't need the seal on the brake side of the CAD, because you need to install a seal on the inside of the carrier same as the driver's side. The axle shaft itself isn't machined to ride on a seal where the stock seal is located.

As far as the bearing/bushing on the diff side of the CAD, I left mine in there. It isn't required for anything, and the axle fit into it. So I figured why bother?
