    I posted a message earlier and thanks for those who responded. I'm wondering who you would order parts from? I'm guessing JEGS or Summit. I'm not ordering from 4 Wheel Parts. For a total rebuild...What do I need? Seems like there are install kits and the ring and pinion. What about seals and all that? Are there any kits that include that or what?

    Most "complete" install kits for R&P's include shims (at least a few), new bearings, new pinion yoke seal, new cover gasket, marking compound, and directions. Most times you will have to buy your own axle seals (as the axles need to be removed and it's a good idea to replace the seals while your in there). Some kits may come will axle seals, but none that I have used.
