Front Drive Shaft Rebuild

So, I'm in the middle of rebuilding my front drive shaft, but I have a couple of questions.

I bought the greasable centering yoke, based on the write up on Stu's site.

Based on additional research, I bought a grease slinger

When I disassembled my drivshaft I had the rubber seal come off and it looked deteriorated so I bought a new one of those too.

So, my questions are as follows
1) I have read in various places that welding is required to convert to the greasable centering yoke. But this really only seems to be necessary if I want to use the grease nipple without dropping the driveshaft. Do I need to weld?

2) The grease sling is having a very had time fitting inside/mating with the rubber seal. Do I need the sling with the rubber seal?

I just rebuilt my front shaft last week, all three u-joints and the CV with an entire kit that came from Spicer. In all my reading and how-to videos I watched, I never heard or read mention of welding. Can I ask why you chose the greasable CV?
