Powertrax No - slip front 30 install ?

I have a couple of questions installing a no-slip in a front Dana 30. I have a 99 with a 3.73 so I had to pull the axles and remove the carrier. It doesn't say to put bearing grease on the bearings on either side, so I greased them anyway before putting them back. The other question I had is after removing my brake calipers and reinstalling them I put sly glide on the bolts and I always brush off where the slides contacts the caliper bracket. Should I use anti seize or sly glide which is silicone? I have had this locker for a year and was reluctant to install, it really wasn't that bad, Now on to Moab!!!!!!
Thanks
Peter

i dont think you are supposed to put bearing grease on your carrier bearings...maybe alittle lithium grease or gear oil for an install but not bearing grease..is the no slip a full carrier locker or lunch box type

It's a lunch box. Well I hope the grease will mix with the gl5 lube. Unless someone tells me it will toast the locker I'm going to leave it.
Thanks
Peter

If your talking about a little film of bearing grease on your carrier bearings, there is nothing wrong with that, The gear oil will break down the bearing grease anyway once it has been run for a while.
You are not supposed to "pack" the carrier bearings though like you would a wheel bearing. Although I don't think it would hurt it, and the grease would eventually break down in the gear oil after time.
IMO If you did "pack" them, be sure to change your gear oil after 500 or so miles.

I prefer to use an Anti seize on the caliper bolts and slides.

Thanks NhlBill,
That's exactly what I did. I didn't pack them at all, just spread a little grease to get things back together. Thanks for the help.
