No, no, no,,, I'm tellin' ya, you're wasting your time......
The Dust shield isn't going to hold-back ANYTHING. It isn't meant to, and there's a huge gap between it and the axle (not to mention you have to buy a $60 Knuckle Seal to get to it).
You have 2 choices;
Keep an eye on the fluid level and maintain it.
Replace the Inner Seals (This requires pulling the axles, pulling the carrier out of the diff, installing new seals in there, and you'll be buying 2 Knuckle Seals - Dust Seals - and you might as well put new U-Joints while you have them in your hand, they're actually cheaper than the Knuckle Seals)
