Anyone know what is included in the R&P master install kit??? I've developed a leak in my front differential on the drivers side. I'm going to get it fixed, but I also had plans to get the 4.56's. I'm thinking, if someone will already be in there, I might as well get my gears done!!! and the install kit should have all the replacement seals, right???

That was the shop I was going to recommend. I know many people that had good luck with them. Otherwise I would say there is an awesome shop out here in near me, but that is a drive.... About 25 miles NE of me.

Contents of a Master install kit:
Assuming that you get your master install kits from where I get them (and if you want a good price, PM me):

2 new Timken Carrier bearings w/associated shims

Pinion Pre-load and Load bearings w/associated shims (Timken)

New crush sleeve for pinion

New ring gear Left hand bolts

New pinion nut, washer

Gear paint, for gear pattern check

Loctite, Permatex Gasket Maker (for diff cover)

There are more than enough parts to replace all bearings and bolts inside the diff, definitely worth getting. New axle seals do not come with the master install kits, but they cost like $3 at autozone or some place like that. Let me know if ya need anymore info...plus, one more thing, if you have 3.55 gears right now, you will need a new front carrier for the lower 4.56 gears. 3.90 and lower is the cutoff for the front end Dana 44's. So if you have the 3.92's, then you will be okay.

The pinion seal for my front axle that I got from Dana spicer sucked!! Also they messed up and gave me the wrong bearing sizes. Be very careful when ordering gears and install kits, make sure you read the existing tag on your diff cover cause that has the exact info on your differential. Many dana 44's look the same but have different parts needed, I found that out.

Small world outlaw.... danaspicer sent me the wrong front bearings too. They said something about a regular use axle and heavy duty and aparently I had the heave duty version because they sent bearing that were to small and I too got rid of the crush sleve because it sucked, I should say the shop did and used a different one.

...if parts required to repair/replace is needed, Rear End Specialist should have or be able to get those replacement parts, right?

Tunis, that's the place that installed my gears and later my rear Detroit. I'm almost positive that the seal you need is NOT included in the kit. Have both front axle seals replaced while the're doing your gears, or else it's about $200 labor just to open everything up for the front seals (the front carrier has to be pulled out). I have been satisfied with their work and will continue to do business with them. By the way, if they are doing gears having a locker put in at the same time will not cost any additional labor!!!!
