Yeah I'd go 3/8" or 1/2" at least, but that style should work.
If there is any rubber or plastic on the bottom you will want to remove that so the heat and oil does not cause it to decay or come loose inside the rear end.
Maybe see if you can find out what the factory studs torque down to?
I don't think it's very much, like 20 ft lbs or so.

Yeah. I don't think the supports should be tightened very tight. I would be worried about it stressing the center of the bearing. I would think snuffed good should work. I think the cap bolts, if that's what you talking about are actually pretty tight. But its been a while.

I'm talking about the support studs. They have a torque figure to pre-load the bearing cap center. I'll see if I can find out what it is.

Re: what it takes...

Here's the LPW Ultimate Installation procedure and torque specs.

Link to PDF - Installation Procedure

Copy/Paste Instructions below:

1. Prepare the housing for cover installation by cleaning the gasket surface and all cover mounting bolt holes.

2. Inspect the bearing caps and gears for excessive wear or cracks, replace if necessary.

3. If Installing LPW main cap stud kit, torque part # 321-4 (7/16”) to 65ft/lbs. Torque part # 325-4 (1/2”) to 85ft/lbs.

4. Remove the load bolt locking nuts and adjust the load bolts so they will not contact the bearing caps during cover installation.
Note: Adjust the swivel feet until they pivot freely on the load bolts before cover installation.

5. Apply silicone gasket sealant to the cover gasket surface. Also apply a small amount to the load bolt threads at the locking nut area to provide a positive seal once the load bolt is adjusted and locking nut installed.

6. Install support cover with all the cover mounting bolts finger tight.

7. Torque the cover mounting bolts. Applications with 5/16” bolts torque to 25ft/lbs. Applications with 3/8” bolts torque to 35 ft/lbs.

8. Torque the load bolts to 10ft/lbs.
Note: Do not exceed 10ft/lbs of torque or bearing distortion and component failure will occur.


9. Install and torque the load bolt locking nuts to 10ft/lbs.
Note: Do not over torque the load bolt locking nuts.


10. Add fluid to the manufacture’s recommended level. If your application has a factory fill plug on the side or front of the housing, it is the correct level to use.
Note: The fill plug on most LPW covers is located higher than the recommended level. Most LPW support covers increase fluid volume approximately one pint.

Applications w/o housing fill plug: Chrysler 8.2 & 8.3, 5 pints / Chrysler 9.25, 5-1/2 pints / Dana 30, 2-1/2 pints / Dana 35, 3-1/2 pints / Dana 44, 4-1/2 pints / Dana 60, 6-1/2 pints / Dana 70, 7-1/2 pints / Dana 80, 10 pints
Note: User and/or installer must make certain the LPW cover will not come in contact with and/or interfere with any suspension and/or chassis component. Do not attach any item(s) other than the LPW axle-tube brace to the ULTIMATE cover. Do not attach any item(s) to the ULTRA cover.

You're welcome.

I knew it wasn't much torque, but I missed it by 10 lbs too much. That's why it always pays to check.

It says to use a bit of silicone on #5 in the list, but I think some Blue thread locker would serve to seal and keep them from loosening up better.

Did you notice it says on #10 - Note: The fill plug on most LPW covers is located higher than the recommended level. Most LPW support covers increase fluid volume approximately one pint.

Maybe another reason to raise the fill/level check plug?
