82 Dana 30 front info ASAP

Hey there, the front end in my 82 cj8 is starting to get some grinding going on and i know it is the inner bearings, the ring and pinion is fine i just had the cover off. I would like to do this myself i do not want to take it to the shop, the only problem i can see with this job is shimming. I am just replacing the bearings so do i have to re-shim and if i do is difficult to get it correct.

Right now i am on Morris4x4center.com looking at a master kit and it is only showing one seal and and it does not exactly tell me which bearings i am getting, what should i need for bearings seals and shims.

If anyone could help me out i would really appreciate it thanks

If you only need the pinion bearings why don't you visit your local mom and pop parts store and get them right there and be done with it and help your local area.

You can use your local (non chain china parts ***** house) parts store
You can visit your local driveline shop also.

Then you don't have to buy the other bearings or worry if it's right or wrong as you'll see it right there
