Default Dana 44a pinion seal replacement

Doe's anyone know if the pinion seal on the dana 44a is a two piece deal? I bough the outer seal that snaps (with light tapping) into the housing but I got to looking at it real close and looks like there may be some type of rubber seal that goes on the pinion yoke as well?

If anyone can help me with this I would appreciate it.

Mine is an 04' WJ. Sorry for not specifying. However the Dana 44a I have was taken from another WJ at the junkyard and I am not sure what year that one was. Obviously it was in the 99-04 range. It had an open carrier and not the varilock if that helps.

I am swapping out my D35 for the D44a.

Here the ebay number for the other piece I think I need in addition to the one I bought. This piece looks like it goes in before popping in the outer one. I would have posted the link but this site won't let me for some reason.

eBay item number:
352237815903
