G2 front shafts in dana 44

I have some g2 front axle shafts coming tomorrow and was wondering if I need new seals like I've heard some other brands require.

Thanks!

I didn't put new seals in when i switched to RCV's. Just be careful so that you don't rip the seal when you put them in.

Thanks, it's going to be a fast install (if I can). heading out of town and will be doing some wheeling, so I want to make sure I have everything I need before the install.

The rears installed fine with no issues (thanks to a 20 ton harbor freight press I had to buy).

How many miles do you have? New seals are a cheap insurance from leaks. You already have the axle torn apart, why not replace them if you have significant mileage on it...
