60n68palaridin 12-15-2007 11:49 AM

59 wagon man 12-15-2007 11:53 AM

60n68palaridin 12-15-2007 12:15 PM

59 wagon man 12-15-2007 12:22 PM

i think around $50 to $75 installed on the axle with the new seal apiece

60n68palaridin 12-15-2007 12:44 PM

its that price per side?

59 wagon man 12-15-2007 12:56 PM

yes it was per side but it was around 5 or 6 yrs ago .also the bearings must be pressed onn and off

hey just a quick note...3.08-3.70 uses the same case and the 4.11 on up has a different case. Otherwise depending on your current ratio you may need a ring gear spacer.

Richmond gear has most all you need.

Hi,
I just bought an axle bearing through Drake Restoration-on line.
They have lots of parts for 55-64 Chevy rears.
