    I've posted this question in a different thread, but i sorta went a little off topic and no one responded. But I really need some help with this, can't find the info anywhere. I have a 10 bolt rearend and I got a truetrac for it. Now the stock carrier bearings don't even come close to fitting. I have found out that some kinda locker from auburn and the truetrac are the only carriers that use these bearings in the 10 bolt that I'm looking for. The perfomance offroad shop here says they know NAPA has them, cause they've gotten them from them before, but usually the unit comes with papers with part numbers for these bearings but mine didn't. So I have no idea what bearings I need! :confused: If anyone knows or could point me in the right direction I'm all ears:ears:

    we installed a posi for a guy onetime. it said if you use this in a late 80s or newer 10 bolt use the stock bearings. if in the older axle use the newer style in the older axle.

    quite possible, the newer ones with the 30 spline axles use larger bearings
