Manual harps on changing the colapsible spacer when replacing the Pinion shaft seal. Anyone know if this is really neccassary or can seal be replaced w/out disturbing the colapsible spacer?

Yep..you must replace the crushable spacer. The bearings are preloaded and once you remove the pinion nut you will loose the preload. The only way to preload the bearings is thru the use of a new crush spacer. When the manual "harps" usually for a good reason.
