installing rear axles
 
I have a ford nine inch. do i need to pack the axle bearings with grease or are they lubbed by oil in the 3rd member?.

They are lubed by the grease in the axle housing. I hope you are installing new axle grease seals.

There is 2 different styles. If your axle seal is behind the axle brg on the axle then its lubed by the diff oil. If you have a seal inside the axle tube and just the axle brg on the axle its a sealed brg, and not lubed by the diff oil.
