    well I bought my blazer in nov. then found out that my trans and front axle were blown:mad: . so I yanked the trans and bought a front axle that was only supossed to need hubs and a pinion seal. so I yanked out the axle yesterday and put it in today. I also added two leafs per side for some more lift. well anyway I pulled the pan to service it and found two roller bearings:doah:so I need some bearings! so my question is this. Do the front and rear axles use the same carrier and pinion bearings? and are the carriers and gears the same front to back as well:confused:

    thanks in advance

    10 bolt fronts and rears should be able to swap carriers, gears, spiders, etc. When you buy gears for a 10 bolt they are able to be used in the front or rear axle. If you buy a locker for a 10 bolt you can use it in either carrier so they should be the same.
