Slinger...

I am going to put the bearing on the Pinion and want to know, if I should put this on or not. The rear set never had on and the front had one... Should I put one on both? Or is it best to not put them on at all?

Put them on the ones that had one and not that didn't? I am unsure on this Just wanted some clarification.

Chris

If it came with the slinger, put it back on.

If it didn't, oh well.

If the axle came with an oil slinger, put it back on. I mean, you don't HAVE to if you don't want to, you would have to mic the thickness and then add that amount in shims. But I would put the slinger back in.

Now if your other axle doesn't have an oil slinger, (and some don't) don't worry about putting one into it. Unless of course you run a steep pinion angle which a slinger will help keep the pinion bearings oiled.

The rear doesn't take a slinger. Don't put it on.
