    I bought a TRD LSD for my Taco and wanted to replace the rear diff carrier bearings before I install everything.

    The dealer doesn't have clue what the bearings are and says I have an 8.75" rear, can't be, right? It should be an 8".........

    NAPA doesn't have a listing at all..............

    Advanced says they have them for the 8.75 on special order.

    The bearings are the same with or without the LSD so what bearings should I get and where?

    And I thought this would be an easy install...... :eek:

    Is there someone I should ask specifically about this problem? Dealer? Friend? :rolleyes:

    So it has an 8" ring gear and an 8.4" case?

    Thanks, now I have to find the bearings.
