Default Need help on the tranaxle oil seals.....

I have done quite a bit of reading here and on LegacyGT and I still am having some reservations which will make sense in a sec.

Background - I recently received my new to me 07 OBXT with a 5spd manual. The right front cv axle was beyond gone on arrival. I knew I was going to need to do some work so no biggie on swapping the axle, but in doing so I did realize I needed to change the axle seal too(my previous experience had been with the studded transaxles so usually the seal was not necessary unless leaking.) So I started reading here and NASIOC on the PN to use and there is a lot of, if not conflicting, confusing info. So I figured leave it to the local Subaru parts guy and I ordered both the left and right axle seals and I received as follows:


Marked as LH by the parts guys PN 806735290 in a sealed package and here are the pics:





I hope its showing up in the pic through the bag but the inside surface of the seal is smooth.



Marked as RH by the parts guy PN 806735300 in an opened and resealed package which I fricking hate and here is a photo:



The inside surface of the seal is directionally grooved.



I called 1stSubaru where I order my larger less time sensitive parts orders and they verified PNs and sides are correct but I am not comforted by the opened package for starters and more so the significant difference in the physical appearance of the seals themselves. Any guidance here would be greatly appreciated especially some assurance I have the correct RH seal for starters because my car is literally apart in my garage as we speak.

Thanks in advance

My fault - didn't like the fact that the seals were shot form different sides so I flipped the LH seal inside the bag and took a pic from that side and here's that pic:



The LH seal is also grooved. I was looking at a different inside surface that was smooth, this one is also directionally grooved and in the opposite direction. I'll leave it up in case someone else needs to look at a pic.

Yes, the seals are directionally grooved and are side specific.

They are directional so they wont leak. Use the correct part.
