I don't spell well

Default Rear Diff axle seal ... is this normal?

Both sides look like this so I was wondering if it's good?

Its look like that inside part is bent up a little. Can you see the spring if its still there?
Personal seals are cheap $10 or so each I would allows replace them regardless. I have learned the hardway and its just not worth it for a small amount of money.

Sounds good to me. Do the new seals come with springs or do I need to order those separately?

Nope new seals come with them. I actually just got them for mine. If you can wait order from subarugeniuneparts.com I think its $8 each or something there or if you need them quick get local dealership, but they charged me $11 something each. Again small price to pay to save yourself a headace.

My dealer carries them for <$5.

Actually, they've matched or beat SGP on nearly everything so far... and with no shipping.

But yeah, replace them now or regret it later.

It's called cheap insurance. Replace it and don't worry about it.

Don't replace it and you worry that someday it'd leak, causing you to blow a $$$$ part.

looks strange... at any rate, don't you need a seal driver to install it properly?

I actually pulled out the old seal, put new seal over hole, put old seal on top of new seal, and lightly tapped the seal in with a hammer by beating on the old seal. The old seal took the beating and pushed the new seal perfectly into place.

That went well.

But when I was pulling the seals I though one was stuck, turns out the puller was just caught on the side.
