If you are replacing the bearings in your rear end don't forget the axle retainers. Original retainers are prone to distort which allows the bearing to move aroud in the housing which can result in leaks or early bearing faliure. Don't take a chance on old retainers when these new reproductions are available. The bearing and lock ring will need to be pressed off to replace this part.
