Ring and pinion install kits...

I'm overwhelmed with all the different kits and what they come with, i'm looking for master install kits for my hp30 and 8.8 i'll be going to 4.88s soon and i'm needing help on which kit to get. links would be great, along with personal experience with that specific kit. I'm wanting timken bearings too, the guy putting them in recommended them...

I have installed and used over a dozen Yukon master install kits and gears. The kits have all Timken bearings and high quality seals.

If it has tracks, tires or tits, its gonna cause a problem.

A complete master kit for an 8.8 out of an explorer is YK F8.8. That is the kit that I have used many times with no problems at all.

The only bearings I will use in a diff or axle are Timken or *** (just incase the censor picks that up its spelled eff aye jee). Period. Anyone who tells you "its the same quality or better" and doesn't tell you want brand it is, is trying to sell you something made somewhere by a company you have never heard of. Diff parts are not a place to cut corners. Spend the money and buy a good kit.
