Re: "its all about ol' black"

Time to tap in new seals .
A 1/2 3/4 ton front spindle nut socket fits seal perfectly for installing .

The backlash on the gearing was at .008 when removed and we are hoping to keep the same. The factory carrier had .045 on ring gear side and .066 on non.
We removed bearings and honed out for a slip fit on new carrier to get lash within specs;then installed new bearings on the Maximizer carrier.
Needed .048 on ring gear and .032 on non and it got us the .008 we were looking for when installed with new bearings and torqued to spec.
