    Purchased the truetrac and a full rebuild kit, it cost a few dollars more than what ford wanted for bearings and races just for the carrier. 226$, uses timken bearings, has everything needed. I will, I imagine it would help cool the axle better. Won't rust either.

    Yeah I did press new carrier bearings on but I reused the ring gear bolts. Also look into an 08+ aluminum rear axle cover. They're not too expensive surprisingly.

    Good to hear, I'll just get a set of carrier bearings, new ring bolts and maybe a shim kit to be sure.

    As long as your fluid looks good (no excessive metal or water) then I wouldn't worry about the pinion bearings yet. All I basically did was take my old carrier out and toss the truetrac in. I didn't have to change any shims and my backlash was fine. That was about 40k miles ago and I've changed the fluid a few times since then but it's always looked great. The truetac itself is great, works when it's needed and I never know it's back there the rest of the time.

    I see in your sig you went with a truetrac, and I'm about to buy one myself.I'll assume Pennsylvania sees the same sort of winters northwest Indiana does, and I was curious how you liked it. Mainly with your being a ford tech I'll also assume you see or do rear end work way more than I do(I mainly work on class 8 stuff). I was wondering what you think my chances are of if the pinion bearings are fine then just swapping the carriers and resetting backlash and getting a good tooth pattern without any issues. I'd like to be prepared parts wise and get it done in a day at most, but not buy a full rebuild kit I won't use most of if possible. Truck has a 102000 and hasn't been worked hard towing wise, rear end is quiet on accel and coast, no Discernible play anywhere. Any advice or experience would be appreciated.
    Thanks,
    Andy.

    If your on currently, take a peek at the 6.0 problems thread, under the motor section. A guy is stuck with a sick motor.

    Morning,

    In regards to the pedestal on my 03 engine. If you have a second can you point me in the direction to go? What, in your opinion, are my options? I really do not want to have to throw a bunch of money at a 03 turbo
