    Is this kit included in the Ford Racing Ring/pinion kit to rebuilt the rear end?

    • No, these must be ordered separately. These are the outside axle bearings and seals. The kits come with pinion bearings and carrier bearings (think inner axle bearings). Good luck.

      Easy and quick install

      Free rental of the removal and install tools from the auto parts store is the way to go here. The removal and install only took 15 minutes! It's the removal and re-install of the rear brakes and the axles, the draining and refilling of the differential that take most of the time. All together, it took me 8 hours(I did the whole job by myself, as usual) but, It felt good when I was done!

      Great Product!

      I ordered these to replace my factory bearings on my 99 GT. I'm sure the factory were fine, but with the car being 17 years old.... I think it deserved them! I order them Sunday evening and they arrived on Tuesday.

      A good idea to change these if you're changing out the gears anyway. Worked as described.
