Repack rear wheel bearings?


Been trying to fix a damn ARB leak lately and if you read my previous post it looks to be a bearing preload issue so I'll be pulling the locker again to repair it.

Quick question, any need to repack the bearings in grease? I suppose it couldn't hurt but wanted to check. I doesn't seem they get much in the way of lube once they're installed and running. Does anyone repack them when they pull the axles. I've got a Currie D60 back there with the Currie shafts.

No. Those bearings are lubricated by the gear oil in the axle.
