This is the passenger side the driver side looked fine. Is this a problem? What would've caused this?

Looks like a bad inner seal that made it do that!

Should I sand the shaft down to remove the rust off of it before putting it back in? Also in the spindle where the axel shaft seal sets there's a even lip all the way around should that be there or should the inside of spindle be smooth

the rust is from the dust seal failing and letting stuff get in there.
mine looked the exact same.
not a huge deal. most trucks dont even have dust seals.

Agreed that has nothing to do with the inner axle seal

that failure would let oil run out of the diff

the outer dust seal is more like a rock blocker and doesn't prevent water intrusion down the tube later they improved the seal and it now goes in the axle tube end vs the shaft

they can be retrofitted but there is a cutoff date where they won't fit older axles and I don't recal the year
