I have already done the rear seal TSB so i know its not that

    Zerks are a good thing. The sealed ones fail, because they cannot be greased.

    Plus its good to grease them before and after going offroad that requires water crossing.
    This way grease won't let water in and afterwords grease will push any water out that did manage to get in. Its just a precaution. :)

    How do you put a carrier bearing on upside down? That takes some skill.

    They dont come with them stock, but when they replaced mine after my carrier bearing went out they put on zerks. n my opinion they are much better then the sealed!
