I tried all kinds of things to get that seal into the place, could not get it %100, so I just figured I will push the hub in and it will push the seal cover into place. So far so good, no rubbing.
^ Congrats on completing the jobs.

To answer your question... I just cleaned up the rear dust covers and pushed them on by hand and they seemed to go all the way on without having to tap/straighen them up with a drift to get them all the way seated.
