Started disassembly on rear axle. Found my right wheel bearing is no good.

They are part of the leaf pack. I'm not 100% satisfied with them. Have been speaking with a local spring maker. But I'm torn between linking rear, or new custom rear springs...

Had 2 stripped studs, had to weld nut to stud. Decided it was time to replace all housing studs. My local reibes had them. Will need to grind slightly on housing.

I should have gotten one of those gaskets for my rear diff. that cover is still leaking. and I feel if I tighten it any more, that those bolts are going to snap

Wish I could have gotten the into to you sooner, but my buddy sells an upgrade kit to eliminate the stud problems our diffs can have:

Got the ARB 3rd in, and new bearings. I used aluminum foil to line the diff. Took my time making sure it didnt tear. Used approx 7 layers. Grinded what I needed. Cleanup was nice, just folded aluminum foil inward.

Like the foil idea. I usually stuff shop rags in there and end up catching them in fire.

It was my easiest cleanup. I did stuff rags in the axle tube, then foil over everything.

Sweet idea with the foil.  I did the NW stud eliminator kit, happy so far.  Yours looks great, though I need a Lube-Locker for my diff too.   :thumbs:
