Ok, thank you. Now the seals. Are they the metal ring that comes with it or do they look like this?

Bearings cages come with a matched bearing race. Install both as a matched set. Seals are seals.

www.rockauto.com has the best info and best selection of parts. Once you locate your part, click on the INFO tab for each available part, some manufacturers have additional info, specifications, and cross reference numbers.

Google for a JEEP Factory Part Number Listing. They show Jeep factory part numbers for every part on your Jeep.

Most parts store counter monkeys are morons and can only tell you what the computer screen says. The computer parts data bases have numerous proven errors.

You should always know more than the parts monkeys about what parts you need, before you enter the store.

Thanks, that is the exact reason that I have not bought anything yet. I will print out these parts and take them with me. Hopefully I will have this back together by the end of the day and have no more noise!
Thank's Tim

Ok, so the ZJ uses the C clips and doesn't use the retainer rings. The WJ has the bearing pressed onto the axle shaft with the retainer rings but they come with the bearing which was confusing me.

If your bearing comes with a new race, you need to use it. You can't mix new and old bearing parts.

I ran into a pretty big snag. I don't think that I have the correct size bearing removal adapter. They gave me a kit with 1 1/2 to big
1 3/4 to big
1 1/4 to small

It pulled the seal and part of the bearing case came off and all the bearings fell out but the case or ring is still stuck in the tube. I tried to attach it again but the 1 /14 just slips off and comes right out with out the bearing ring.

I guess my next question is how to get out the remaining part without damaging the tube.

I have one but I am very hesitant to use it. I probably don't have much choice at this point though. I have tried to re attach the puller 3 times and it just slips right off. I am worried that this will happen to the other side too.

Just be very careful with a dremel, most of the time you only need to go about half-way through that outer shell and when you put the slide hammer back on the shell it might break it and come out ( make sense?)

If you do get into the axle tube, its not that big of a deal if its only a little bit.

I hear you on that. I was looking at the swivel end of the puller and it looks like it is just a tiny bit to small to catch the lip of the bearing and slips right off. That's how it caught onto the bearings themselves and ripped the outer lip off. I can pull it out without the hammer attached. What a pos. I guess it can never be too simple. I am guessing that I can expect this with the other side as well.

I'd go with a 3-jaw on the other side. Don't use the washer looking attachment.
