I’m in the process of changing out the oil seal the cv axle goes through in the diff. I got the seal out and a small spring ring came out also. Anyone have an idea of where this goes when put back together? This is on a 2016 wrx

That spring is part of the seal called a garter spring. The new seal should have one in it. It serves to increase the contact force between the seal lip and the shaft [CV joint].
