question on seals and axles for cj8 project full floater

hi been busy and got the inner bearing out of the chevy splindle so i can have some mach work done on the dana 44 axles................on the lube inside seal when i took the splindle loose i still had the old amc stock grease seal in place and as you can see the inside dia of the seal is almost a perfect fit on the dana 44 axle...............couple of questions................. 1. how far past the end of the splindles do the spline end of the dana 44 axles stick out ........... from my rough measurement seems like about 1/4 in short of the end of the hub would be about right.............but if anybody knows for sure or can suggest the best way to figure the length would be big help.........2. with the 44 axles the right dia for the seals i am planning on having the 30 spline end machined down the same dia as the cut splines back to just before the area that the seal will ride on and then just polish that area up..............looks like i can put at least one more of the stock amc 20 seals in and press it in right up tight against the first one and maybe even room for three of them as the lip cut into the backside of the chevy splindle is only about 1/4 in ...............take a look at the photos and any feedback on if you guys agree with my thoughts thanks
