    I had the same dilemma….ended up goin OEM, after many negative reviews and experiences with aftemarket coils in particular the MSD brand

    What did u do to your raptor today?

    You hope so¿? A few weeks ago I thought diferente sanarioooos when I first noticed a different sound; is it the pavement(s)/roads changing as I travelled down to FL from ME; is it my KO3s starting to hit the wear noise level? Then I investigated further as the sounds grew louder every day ever...

    What did u do to your raptor today?

    Now that she is all buttoned up…a good power wash and a tire rotation. Took her out for a test run and everything worked perfectly…no runs, leaks or errors!

    What did u do to your raptor today?

    I did reuse the original shims(test installed it with new crushed sleeve, checked out within spec and measurements!) saved on not having to disassemble more than once!), and did replace the crush sleeve and new pinion nut…the pinion pic has the new bearings installed , but used the old crush...

    What did u do to your raptor today?

    I had previously replaced the pinion seal, new fluid and Spicer cover at 100K. The fluid previously and now were not bad. This time there were tiny shavings but no bits or chips. In a previous post I showed the worn bearings

    What did u do to your raptor today?

    All new bearings, races and seals. The ring gear, spider gears and pinion were in good shape and within spec…only the original bearings and races were worn! I will just have to settle with a rebuilt rear for another 160K and missed my opportunity to get a sexy new Currie Raptor Race unit!

    What did u do to your raptor today?

    Sarcasm; “The wrong part was like this…see how they are an exact replacement”. Maybe I was not clear enough; the original set were the correct boxes and part numbers for the shaft bearings, however one had an oil bearing inside, misplaced previously or the parts/warehouse technician expert...

    What did u do to your raptor today?

    No. The wrong part was in the box(axle shaft bearings were what I ordered). I didn’t take a pic. I sent them back and I just got the correct one. The wrong part was like this…see how they are an exact replacement

    What did u do to your raptor today?

    Got the new ones in…Was waiting for the second one, somehow the dealership parts experts misplaced an oil pump bearing for these ?

    What did u do to your raptor today?

    What a PITA to remove these axle shaft bearings! Even with a slide hammer tool they were like heat welded onto the housing. I had to cut one to be able to chisel them off!

    What did u do to your raptor today?

    157K miles….also goin to go ahead a do all the bearings and seals while it’s all apart now…still cheaper than a Currie! That I really want

    GEN 1 Rear differential thrust washer

    Ditto…if you don’t know what or why, then follow the advice and take it back ASAP…it will ruin your carrier

    What did u do to your raptor today?

    Initial tear down and inspection …It turns out to be just worn out pinion bearing and everything else looks good to go and only fines in the oil no chips or bits. I was a bit depressed still bc not enough reason to go full on retard and order a nice Currie built rear for the Beast as a Christmas...
