I did this pinion seal replacement this weekend. It went pretty well other than putting the flange/yoke back on went pretty hard. I made sure it was lined up and started on ok, but I had to really beat it with hammer and then tighten up the nut little by little until it went on all the way. Is that normal? I mean I really had to hammer on it for quite a while. It did come off hard as well with the gear puller.

And I did mark the pinion nut so that I got it on exactly to the same place where it was before I took it off. It lined up perfect when I got it as tight as I could go, which would reinforce that the crush sleeve sets this distance automatically.

I would say you are fine. Congrats, yes the crush sleeve pretty much prevents all that.

Great writeup, ibd. In fact, all of your how-to's are top-notch. You have that teaching gene that is so rare these days.

I did the pinion seal replacement last fall, but only just now found your how-to. Turned out I did most everything correctly, and I got myself a new impact wrench in the process (old one was too tired and worn-out).
