    $2400 shipped to my door.


    It needed the bearing pressed onto the axles, but otherwise it all went together easily.

    Lines and everything worked stock? So, the ONLY thing you had to do besides install it was 'the bearing pressed onto the axles.'?

    Yup.

    The one thing to look out for is the T-Bolts that hold the backing plates on. Make sure you use loctite on them....just in case. Heard of a very few of them going loose on guys. Not good.

    Well thanks for settling that for me, been talking to TSP and Moser and never got a straight answer.

    The brake lines don't have the tie downs like the stock rearend has, but you can find a place for them. Couple zipties.

    It really was an easy install.

    12 bolt is the same.. had to press bearings, install old backing plates.. then ziptie the cables on.

    Which rear is better? The 9" rear or the 12 bolt rear.

    They don't come witrh the bearings pressed in????

    I thought they they were plug n' play.

    You guys do it yourselves or did you have to take it to a shop?

    Is there a reason they don't come with the bearings already pressed in?? Seems like a hassle considering the price you are paying.

    because you have to put the brake backing plate on BEFORE you put the bearings on the axle.

    Would they do it if you sent the backing plates to them?

    I've put two rear ends in in my life, both 9" Ford rear ends, both had the driver's side bearing go, but I really don't feel comfortable with the idea of pressing in the bearings.

    Costs more to ship them than it does to have a shop press them on.
    Seriously a 3-4 minute job.
