Hi superdave this is lostrider,
~Is the part plastic and looks like a thrust washer,has groves in it?
thank you for the reply, its a thrust washer that goes between the axle and the wheel bearing hub assembly, there is no diagrams on this washer or its placement, but here is a diagram of the steering knuckle with the hub removed showing the axle, the thrust washer goes there and then the hub gets installed, hope this helps.

Was it the inner seal that was replaced at the knuckle?
If so, was the axle properly seated into the axle housing and side gear splines?
If the answer to both of those are yes, then you may need to remove the seal and see if the axle turns freely again, if it does then the seal is the cause, either not seated all the way into the knuckle properly or binding causing the concern.
