Getting ready to buy a set of 5.29's and rebuild both of my 3rds. The truck doesnt have too many miles on it, but I have some question as to the prior owners maintance. Any tools that Im going to need besides a dial indicator? Any suggestions as to where I should order my rebuild kits? I also dont have air tools. Thanks...

WTF kinda 3rd is it?

5.29s= Toyota. You'll need an inch lb. torque wrench and a magnetic base for the dail indicator. As for the spanner wrench you can easily make one with a 2' piece of flat stock then on the other end drill two more hole to bolt to the flange so you can tighten the pinion nut. It takes alot to get that crush sleeve started. I picked up a press and bearing puller from HF, both were $140. You'll need a press as who knows how many times you'll have to pull the pinion bearing while getting the pattern right. When you buy the gears get atleast the mini install kit. It will come with more than enough shims and marking compound to do a few set ups. It will also come with the crush sleeve. You can get the sleeve at the dealer but it's $27 list or get the mini kit for about that.
When the crush sleeve is close to being tight go slow, if you over tighten it you'll have to replace it and it will happen real quick. Jay K has a good write up on it if you don't have the FSM. It's on the outdoorwire.

Oh yeah, I'm blind.

OK Q for all you guru's, when we last did my buddies toyota we used an old electric stove burner to get the pinion bearing hot enough to just "Drop" it on, it would easily slide down untill hitting the shims.
Question is what could someone use to eighter heat the bearing again to take it off or cool the pinion?

as this would make it a snap, and probably save some bearings over the years!

If your going to heat the bearings, use a temp stick. 200 works great. You can also throw the carrier or pinion in the freezer to help before installing the bearings. As far as heating the bearing to get it back off, since your metal to metal, the heat transfer is too fast, and it doesn't work. Your better off getting a hand bearing puller set if you don't have access to a press. They're a little more work, but they'll get the job done. If you don't want to buy one or don't know someone with one, some rental places rent them. And prussian blue or white grease for checking the contact pattern.
