While you have the shafts out, it would be a good time to look at the spindle bearings,

Take a look at the inner machined area of your axle shaft ears nearest where they start to get thicker and take a turn towards the shaft to see if they will accept the full circle clips.

You can do this by looking at your current c-clip set-up are verify if there's enough machined space so that a full circle clip can be utilized.

Thanks, I noticed that too.

Now I just have to find a good spindle rebuild kit for both sides. Any recommendations? I already found these that I should probably change since I am doing the U Joints.
