csi & redriver have them for $16.95 (zipper)
talk to tom at csi & i lost his #

i talked to to some one today at redriver & their # is 903-547-2226

i got all my bearings, seals & boots from csi (little cheaper)
go w/ the one piece. it will not let water or dirt in.
also get new clamps at the same time(small & large)

No mater what you get they rip. Ive been through 3 sets. I said **** it and pack them full of grease. My last set came from the guy that sell the over prices seal's that dont leak. Dont leak if you have new axle shafts. Oh **** mine are like 20 years old hell ya they got grooves.

Please read the rules. -4x4Freak

the only other seals are the inner & outer seal on the hub.(rear)
in the front rock there is one other seal.

while your putting pinion brakes also put the pinion seals(x2 per axle)

pinion brakes go w/ btf or oversaun (sp).
on ebay they are always up for sale.

also look in to the mohawk diff cover from btf.

flip the hubs to get the wheels tucked further in. & if you can
buy new lug nuts & studs to match the other side.
they have left hand thread & right hand thread

What would i search for on pinion brakes on ebay? i already planned on getting all right hand thread studs for em. i looked into making my own highclearance pans at work, but it turns out to be a pain without any patters.slideaction is supposed to help me narrow the front

What do you think about these. i wonder what rotors and calipers they use? i wouldnt think they would only cost $35 for a calpier

I still have boots there just ripped. In a couple place.(Thrid set!) Some of the guy's i run with from east texas. Have never run boots. They dont replace a thing intell it goes out or start's making noise. Rockwells are beast. There not like everyone mommaboys60's. Just run them.

Peaple spend to much money. Like bearings if there not grinding just repack them. I would build the cover it cost me like $25 in metal. And that was enought to do both of them. Touck like two hours. I only end up doing one. You realy need to pull the diff to do it right. On my rear i just going to do the flat circle plate skid.

Pinion brake's. Most are chevy calipers set up's. Im running a bracket that lets me run yota rotors and yota four piston caliper's. Work's great. Same pads for the last 2 years. And built rotor guards.

I got them but the ones off of Pirate4x4 board. I have one stock one and one upgraded one in right now. Both have leaked. But my shafts are old to they have wear lines on the axle seal surfaces.. If you got the money run them if not its no biggy.
