Housings are tight, (with stock preload)

dummie bearings are nice, just like any other

Uses a crush sleeve on the pinion. Only real difference.

Other wise, same shit, different pile.

D30's don't have crush sleeves, shims are used to set the pre-load on the pinion bearing.
Will you be replacing the pass. side axle too with a one piece unit?

The new ARB for the Dana 30 runs the shims on the outside of the carrier bearings. Don't waste your time making setup bearings until you make sure which side of the bearing your ARB runs the shims.

yup. It was in a TJ if that makes any difference. not sure if there were differences from the older Ford/Jeep versions.

Looks like that's just a TJ thing. Look at the paragraph title Wrangler Dana 30 in the 2nd to last sentance.
