I am not sure just what shaft you are talking about,i think you mean the outer tie rod end and the seal you mean is the dust boot on the tie rod end, when you buy a new end it will come with a new boot. but if you mean the front axle shaft it should not cause the tire to wear funny it might cause some noise or a shake but not a wear problem.

The light come on for the 4wd on my 93 dodge Dakota le but will not shirt in


Check the two vacuum hoses on the right
front side, of the front axle housing

You can use a hand held vacuum gauge, to check
the vacuum modulator & see if it will lock the front axle

Have to have the front end up in air & supported &
turn wheel/tire by hand, as you apply vacuum

Keep in mind with 4 wheel drive,only the right rear &
left front are driven wheels,not all 4

If the front axle locks in, with you pulling a vacuum & you have no
vacuum at the front hoses,then go to the transfer shifter & next to
it,is the vacuum switch

Front wheels not turning in 4wheel drive 1996 dodge dakota


Check and make sure the transfer case is adjusted right If the front end was broke you would know it. Jack up one front wheel and put it in 4wheel drive but not lock and see if the front drive shaft turns if it doesn't you need to adjust linkage or if it's electric make sure the signal is getting to the transfer case. If it only locks front and rear jack up one rear wheel also and do the check. Most people with 4 wheel drive don't know they have two wheel drive One in the rear and one in the front unless you ordered a locking dif from the factory they don't come this way. Then you would have 3 wheel drive

pass side and pull a vauum on canister, to test for the rod engaging,with wheels off ground,and turning them
