Smile seal on passenger front

a few weeks ago i did my front breaks. notice that the seal were my front drive shaft slides into the axle or w/e you wana call it is just hangin out. seal is still good. all the u joints and seals are. even the ball joints.Its not the seal on the back side of the dust cover but the outer seal closest to the engion. I know ther are inner seals and all this and it is go to say just a dust/ dirt keeper outer. From what ive been told and found out. How much of a pain is that seal to get back in. Should i even wory about it??? Or wait till i have to pull the driveshaft for something else??

When I regeared my front end, I saw on both sides, the dust seal was hanging loose. I put them back in only to have them both come back out when I looked next time. I was told they rub against the axle kunckles and most of them never stay in ? ?

It's a dust shield. You can try to push it back in, but it will probably just pop out again. When a new one is installed, the shaft should be lightly greased so that is can rotate inside the seal. Once the seal loses its friction factor, the shaft will just spin it out during use. Pretty sh!tty design.
