Front differential engagement shift shaft seal

The seal on the front differential engagement shift shaft has been leaking since I bought this mutt 4.5 years ago. I had changed every seal except that one because of the hassle of getting the old one out with the tranny in place. The seal had been sitting in my shop for 3 years and I finally decided to bite the bullet and attempt to change it. I got it changed but it remains to be seen if the leak is stopped. I say this because it appears that the seal glan was not machined concentric with the shaft. By calibrated eyeball it looks to be offset about 1/64 to 1/32 to the right. Has anyone observed this before.
