|Gozuki||Call LKQ Canada. Their southern brethren located a matching set for close to $500 delivered.|

|F*** ROADS||After some research, it looks like getting one of these to Canada is not cost effective. And the dealers here want $1132 canadian. So the only option would be getting lucky at a JY.|

|F*** ROADS||Anyone know how strong these lockers are? I'm considering grabbing one of these. It would be in a heavyish rig with up to 40" tires one day. Just don't want to find one and grenade it on the trail...|

outer bearing on 11 and up diff
race OD is 4.125 and bearing ID is 2 inch
race OD is 3.25 and bearing ID is 1.625

On another note, if it was different between the two pinions I wonder if you could look through the bearing books and find a conversion bearing with the right od and id?

|D_engel||Did anyone ever get confirmation on whether or not you can throw an older 31 spine pinion into a 2011+ housing with a pre-2011 bearing kit? If the inner and outer pinion race diameters are the same, 3" in older Sterlings I believe, shouldn't everything drop right in?|

|Monstermiler||That probably some type of shot preening to stress relieve the surface after machining.|

|Monstermiler||Thanks for the heads up.|

I just got mine for $480 from Waldorf Ford in MD.
EditToAdd- Waldorf, because Sneed and the others below $500 have TERRIBLE online feedback ratings, both as dealers and parts. Waldorf didnt, and were friendly and helpful when I talked to Jerry, their internet parts guy. The 2 sellers on ebay at $530 have bad ebay feedback, and worse dealership reviews outside ebay.
Shipping to Ak was $100 since they were willing to do USPS (far cheaper up here). Shipping to Wa was showing $50.
The packing could have been better.
I'm going to get an actual amp draw later.
Are the spiders supposed to look like that? Rough cast doesn't seem right.

|dieselboy740||Called my ford dealer and he quoted me 575$. I may do that. Everywhere wants like 80-150$ shipping|

We were putting them through pretty rough conditions, so I would absolutely feel good about them in this situation.

|Subybaja||I like the idea of only one wire, but aren't you worried about putting junk metal under the cap bolt?|
|05-06-2019 12:07 PM|
|Subybaja||Well, my local idiots want $800, plus a $750 core. Nope. Ordered from Waldorf Ford. Now, waiting for Brown Santa.|

If you use his wiring method you should make sure the large heat shrink you use has the adhesive inside. Lube will wick up inside regular heat shrink. Also make sure you make it long enough to go all the way thru the cord grip. He did, but just barely, I would have made it longer.
In looking closely at the video you could add an adel clamp on the bearing cap bolt to hold the wire back from hitting the ring bolts.
A word about the type of cord grip he used. If it is labeled PG# then it is metric threads, but German standards. PG7 is M12.5x1.27. Very odd size and takes a special tap.
PG stands for Panzergewinde.
The cord grips are available with NPT threads so easier than locating a high dollar special tap. When tapping for NPT threads of the cord grip make sure that you tap them deep enough to compress the rubber gasket. I would use metal cord grip instead of the plastic ones.
Here is the metal cord grip I would use. Very cheap @ $16.00 for a pack of 5.
It is 3/8" NPT so a tap is not expensive and easy to get.
Me I would put an adel clamp on the bearing cap and put the tab wire connectors inside the housing.
You only really need one wire if you ground the other wire with a ring terminal under the bearing cap bolt. The ring terminal would probably be too big to pass thru the cord grip but might pass thru the pipe threads in the housing.

i would pig tail the wire. gives ya a bit of room to drop the spades.
if it were on the other side of the ring gear it would not be a issue.
but in this case it is indeed risky to use the pigtail method, so the method the guy chose in the video is likely the most cost effective solution.
those fittings are less then 30 bux and accommodate 2 wires so...
