Need help please! Redhead steering box

I was having a lot of steering play on my 05 SD and decided to replace with a redhead. Well, I was able to get everything changed out and went for a drive. After returning I looked underneath the truck and what did i see, yes atf! Well jumped back on it removed lines and called my buddy at Ford and he told me there are two teflon seals that go on the fittings. WTH redhead didn't mention this just the two seals. Anyway, I'm confused as to do we use the o rings or the teflon seals. Anyone that has installed one please help. Thanks

Hey Chris, Sorry it took this long to respond to your question but to tell you it is night and day difference. I just got back from a 1700 mile trip and it worked flawlessly. No back and forth like I used to do on any trip so, if you are on the fence about the redhead box go for it.
