    Where's the best place to get inexpensive install kits for 10 bolts axles? I have my 4.10's in the garage I just need to get them installed. The install kit has bearings and seals right? Anything speacial? If I just done bearings and seals not to long ago can I just buy the crush sleeves and go cheap?
    I'm reusing my rear carrier and maybe the front (If I can go from 3.08 to 4.10 on an open carrier). I have to do drivers side ball boints and a new drivers side caliper so I'm wanting to get away with regearing on the cheap side. /forums/images/graemlins/tongue.gif /forums/images/graemlins/1zhelp.gif

    If the existing bearings are fairly new, I would just inspect them closely. If there is no obvious damage, then I would reinstall 'em. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif It isn't unusual for those bearings to last 200K miles. /forums/images/graemlins/cool.gif

    2.) What kind of oil should be used with an Auburn differential?

    It is important when installing Auburn differentials that a high quality, non-synthetic 80w90 GL-5 oil, treated with GM or Ford limited-slip additive (also known as friction modifier) be used. Three ounces of additive will treat one quart of oil.
