    Hice How To

    FYI 8 3/4 axles are each the same length as well.

    Rather than a gasket between brake backing plate and housing flange how about just some sealer. The gasket moves the axle flange outward, albeit a very small amount?

      FWIW, I replaced an axle bearing on a 7.25 twice over and the bearings didn't last more than 1000 miles. One was National brand and the other was a part store brand but both were made in China. After that I put a junkyard axle shaft in it with a good bearing. I should have gone with a Japanese or USA bearing to begin with.
      Same story, different day.....
