The R&P definitely wouldn't be the issue, I'd think it could tear up a bearing though.

DO NOT. I repeat, DO NOT use anything other than a SKF (aka chicago rawhide) seal and if you can get a Timken Bearing, do it. The seal is a little bit more expensive than some of the others, but not when you consider you will go that route anyway when the cheap seal leaks because it will. The seal can be found at NAPA (NOS 18731) and the bearing can be found at Autozone (set 10).

So my D44 walks into a bar....

And the girl you leave with says, "I thought you said you had a big d44".All I see is a tiny d35.

Timken is the OEM bearing and SKF is the OEM seal. Its like going to the dealership except you are paying less. I used a carquest bearing and seal (National bearing and Federal Mongul seal) and it leaked worse than the bearing and seal that gave me reason to replace it in the first place. Trust me.

Hey guys, I just wanted to follow up with another question that didn't get answered.

I bought new parking brake assemblies for my rear...I still need one piece though.

In the picture, it is the actuator lever. The cable attaches to it and engages the brake. The second picture shows the other side (behind the purple spring). I contacted the dealership and their not sure if it's the right part or not but they want $45 for it. Any other ideas where I might find one?
