    Should I just apply it to the washer and torque it down? I found a rubber star seal for my rear 32 spline, but front is 10 spline. Any help is appreciated. The large main seal was replaced btw...

    If it still leaks, pull the yoke off clean splines inside an out RTV in the yoke, reassemble. I've had the the rubber inner swal interfere with torque of the retaining nut. Don't want to chance a warranty, the rubber seals go in the trash!

    Thanks for the help. I put a decent bead around the washer and torqued it down. Nothing directly on/in the splines. The rubber seal for the rear output actually sits flush with the surface that the nut/washer torque down on. It gets compressed, but is not sandwiched directly in between the two metal surfaces.

    The rubber seals in the kits are to thick, wrong compound or both. They don't compress enough. Result, yoke is loose and in your 205 the internals are moving around too!
