There is really nothing you HAVE to replace. Unless you get crazy pullin out the axles, then the seals should be fine. Everyonce in a while you have to replace one reguardless anyways. Just buy a tube of silicone and be gentle when pulling you shafts...

WELL! You will need to replace the side bearings on your carrier, along with your driver side axle u-joint, and driver side hub assembly.

Probably should get a shop to do the bearing swap, it should run you about $130 plus how ever much your bearings run. And i would recommend replacing both axle u-joints.

ALL i can say is tomorrow will be a lot of fun!!!!!!

Now would be a good time to install a armor diff cover.


You don't need to replace the carrier bearings with an Aussie locker.

LOL... actually he does, or should i say he did. I was just messing with him, because once we tore it apart we found that the bearings, driver side u-joint and hub were all shot.

But now that i think about it i should have let y'all know that i was just messing with him. if you read this disregard my previous statement as tech (unless all that stuff is actually bad on your rig) because it is not needed to do an aussie install.
