    I replaced the bearing. It is not really that hard assuming you know what to do. and have a shop press. And have the Rotunda differential tool kit. There is some play and movement even with a new bearing. The 2 inner races move in and out a bit even on the bearing out of the box. After you press in the hub, the play (or slack) in the races shows as hub play. Once you tighten it up everything is rigid. The bearing was bad and seemed to have too much play. The problem with the bearing was that one of the carriers was broken soo a few of the rollers on one have had too much play and some carrier pieces were floating around. It also seemed like the grease in the bearing has leaked out past the seal. I disassembled the bearing and will post up some pictures soon. The bearing was real easy to take apart. In theory, you could probably grease and reassemble one of these bearings.

    When I replaced my bearing I also did new hubs and there was virtually no play. I am assuming the new hubs may be the reason for it.

    This is what one of the tapered roller bearing carriers looked like. The good next to it is the other bearing. The rear bearings have 2 opposing tapered roller bearings.

    It resulted in some of the rollers being very loose. A few rollers had massive flat spots.

    To open the bearing I very easily popped out the seal.
