This is from the 2008 Service Manual but all AAM 11.5 axles should be the same.

INSTALLATION
1. Install outer hub bearing cup with Installer 8961
and Handle C-4171.
2. Install inner hub bearing cup with Installer 8153
and Handle C-4171.
3. Pack bearings with the appropriate wheel bearing
grease.
4. Install rear bearing and install new grease seal
with Instalter 8963 and Handle C-4171.
5. Slide hub on the axle tube and install front bearing
into the hUb.
6. Install hub bearing nut with Socket 8954 (1) and
tighten with torque wrench (2) to 30 Nm (22 ft.
Ibs.) while rotating the hUb.
7. Back off nut about 30 and align next hub nut key
slot with axle tube key slot and install locking key.
NOTE: End play should be 0.025 .. 0.25 mm (0.01-0.001 in.)
8. Install retainer ring (1) with ring end in the key slot
(2).
9. Install new axle shaft gasket and install the axle
shaft.

Its definitely a close description but i was doing rear on a 2013 so no grease because it gets lube from diff. Most steps are correct tho. Thanks.
Here are the pics for bearing, wheel seals axle flange gasket, hub tool, and installation instructions specified for the job i did.

Hope this helps someone else

You must have missed step 3. Pack bearings with appropriate wheel bearing grease. You still use wheel bearing grease on these rear ends even though they will get some lube from the differential.

x2 on packing the bearing, they’re not in a full oil bath. When I replaced my leaky inner seal I wasn’t able to get the hub gasket loacal, rtv works just as well FYI
