I would run Koyo axle bearings and national seals. Koyo bought out the torrington usa plant so the Koyo axle bearings for the 5707 are USA made.

^^^^^^^^^

I'd take Miles word , and go for this.


I found my "rear-end code" -- stamped on my pass/side axle tube.
I did have too clean off the paint/grime from the 'tube' , then looked it up @ Novaresource.org
ps. --- I'm a 3rd gen

(found-it stamped on the Rt. side -- front face of tube).

Dave, that master overhaul kit from Amazon doesn't include axle bearings, it has the bearings, seals, etc. for the differential.

Take a good look at your axle when you pull it, in these rears the axle bearing rides directly on the axle with no inner race. When the bearing gets rough, it can damage the axle. Pull both axles and look where the bearing rides, it should be smooth and not rough or worn. Sometimes there is a groove worn into the axle. If it's rough or worn, you'll have to replace the axle(s) also.
