Rear Wheel Spacer Dragging????

I was working on something on my bike that required I take the rear wheel off yesterday. While I had it off I went ahead and checked the wheel bearings for play and drag, they seemed fine.

BUT
The sprocket side wheel spacer was hard to turn inside of the dust cover. It spun but had more resistance than what would seem to be normal? I applied a thin film of high temp bearing grease between the spacer and dust cover seal and it helped with the resistance a little. There arent any components, just the spacer and dust cover......

Is this normal?

This isnt my sprocket, just an example.
I am talking about between the dust cover you see on the sprocket assembly and the outside spacer that rides in it.

There isnt a bearing in the actual sproket. It's just a spacer for lateral movement. It shouldnt really turn at all.

The dust cover does rotate around the spacer though since the spacer doesnt spin when the wheel is tightened up? I am just worried that there is to much resistance and it may cause some problems

The drag should be minimum unless the seal is damaged or deformed.
You can put a very light coat of grease inside the lip of the seal to help it a bit.
If you're still concerned, stop by and I'll look at it, no charge.
