xj/tj axle swap years

I hate to create threads for much discussed topics but i just want to make sute i have this info right.

I am going to drop in either tj/xj axles into my yj for the stronger 297 u joints and to get rid of the vacuum system. After lots of searching it appears that any tj year or xj years 95+ have the same axle with stronger u joint to swap in exactly the same correct?

Also the correct seal is napa 11800 on passenger side and replace drivers side with stock seal correct? Ive heard that there is a third seal located near where the cad is but it is not used because the tj and xj axles dont have them and arent machined for them. If im missing a piece of info or have mistaken info please let me know. Again, i apologize for bringing up info that has been recanted countless times im sure.

For some the 11800 works for others no.
