3:73 Gear Install

I have my 3:73 gears here, and I want to get them installed, but don't have the money for an installation kit. The car has just over 64,000 and its a 1998. Do you think I would be fine with out the kit. Or what do you guys suggest?

you're definately gonna need new wheel seals, and pinion seal, and possibly new bearings once you're is done taking them off. one of my bearings was completely destroyed. but maybe you could be more careful.

so i would recommend getting the rebuild kit.

well i would save up if you cant afford all the parts you need, you should really do it right the first time if you get the rear together and it leaks.... you got to tear it back apart, just save up a little longer and do it right the first time you will be happy you did.
