    I upgraded to solid spacers. I sent my diff's and already had the CV bushing installed. I believe it is worth it knowing how fragile the needle bearing is. I had them inspect my bearing and told them to keep my current bearings unless they found something horrible. I found a good price on Amazon for 3 gallons of the lucas fluid. Even if you have them ship the first use part, you will have to change the rear at 500 miles anyway.

    I called them about changing the front since it is only active when in 4 wheel drive. They agreed that changing it at 500 miles was kinda worthless unless I put in a lot of miles offroading. They said if I didn't use 4 wheel drive at all, that 10k was probably a better time to change it. I changed my front at 5k.

    I was wondering about the break in for the front diff because of that. Any issues using it offroad since the break in is a bit different than the rear?

    Have you really ever had a problem fighting for the fitted sheet? I hate putting those things on, so 1 is quite enough. Think about trying to get them to fit with the other mattress right next to each other.

    I tried to kick mine off and on to get at least a couple of easy miles on it, straight-aways while wet. When I did get it offroad (about 2k miles), I used it just as I always did.

    I got the 42. The sale for the 52 isnt that good and honestly i think the 42 will be enough for me.

    Gear break in I think is more of a safety thing. Most people don't do a break in when trucks or cars are new. Since these are coming from the aftermarket the installer doesn't want to risk an improperly installed R&P is my guess.

    How many sports cars leave the dealer lots and burn rubber first day and never have any issues.

    I need to replace the needle bearing with the ecgs brushing. How many quarts of gear oil does the front diff takes? If anyone has any tips on how to do it as easy as possible, please let me know. Thank you all for any information.

    You can do it without removing the CV from the spindle. Pump out some diff fluid or drain completely, release the tie-rod and LCA, pop the CV out moving the whole assembly, replace the bearing, put it back together, add fluid.

    Get one with a headboard. My personal opinion, but one without a headboard just still looks like a college dorm/bachelor bed
