Differential bearings must be able to handle the tremendous side loads created by the pinion gear acting on the ring gear, for mile after mile. They usually do, but they can fail if not set up properly or not maintained. Proper bearing preload is critical to tapered roller bearings; too much pressure or too little can quickly damage the rollers and races. Allowing a leak to go unrepaired can result in the fluid level running low and the bearings running dry. A problem inside the case such as other parts wearing or breaking can contaminate the fluid and also destroy the bearings. Off-roading can present problems when deep water is crossed and water is allowed to enter the differential case. Water can contaminate the fluid and reduce lubrication efficiency.
Precision Gear has the premium quality bearings you need for a hassle free installation and long term durability. With their extensive experience in all facets of differentials and ring and pinions, Precision Gear knows what works.
