hahaha ok fine.. no you dont need to lube up a seal because its in fact a SEAL.. it stops any fluid from passing by it so no there is no need for lubrication! just make sure you get the correct seal and when you install it, you get it to seat VERY snuggly!

ok and wheres the best place to get the new seal and fluid from? and as long as I mark across the flange and nut and across the whole thing and count how many turns it took to get off, I shouldnt have to worry about messing anything up with the preload or crush sleeve or anything like that right?

when i say "fluid" i mean gear oil... im not sure about the actual flange alignment process.. you can probably get the seal at any local auto part store, or at least they can order it for you pretty easily... a chiltons manual might have the step by step for that replacement..
