T-Case output flange question

I just finished installing the front and rear transfer case flanges on my 1987 D-90 and both seals and flanges went on without a hitch. However, in the front, after installing, it is now very difficult to spin the flange. Prior to installing, the flange would freely rotate with very minimal effort, now, I have to use the butt end of a hammer to rotate the flange. Is this normal? Should I be concerned?

The rear is a little more tight than the old flange, but I can still rotate it with my hand (driveshafts are removed, btw).

Please let me know as I do not want to drive it if it is something that could potentially be wrong.

Thanks!

It shouldn't be that hard to turn. All I can think of is maybe you got the seal really crooked, or not seated far enough. Assuming the TC is actually not locked.

The seal is straight and seated properly and the diff is not locked. I think is has to with the mud shield and how it sits on the Drive flange

Is the mud shield on the flange properly? It should not touch anything. Is the seal countersunk fully? Did you use grease?

Yes, yes, yes. It has gotten easier to spin, but I won't know until I take it for a drive. Just waiting on the new drive shaft...
