Differential rebuild prep brain trust help

Hey guys planning on doing a differential rebuild here in the next week and wanted to make sure I have all the necessary components, so please tell me if I am missing something. This will be my first, but I want to learn how to do it....been watching a lot of YouTube lately
Anyway, I have an eaton trutrac lsd 31spline, new gears, am's fr gear install kit, new pinion bearing, new axles 31 spline. Now I want to replace all the bearings and races. I know that I still need to order axle bearings and seals, but my big question is what do I need for the LSD? If I want to replace the bearings and not reuse the old ones that are already on the LSD are they included in the am kit or do I need to order them? Also are the races included with the bearings or do they also need to be purchased separately? Am I missing anything else? I have a hydraulic press so I'm planning on pressing my own bearings on, but any tips are welcome. I'll try to document my progress as well. Anyway, long post I know but any help I can get on this would be much appreciated. Cheers all!

You have marking compound and a dial indicator with a mag base correct? And a really big cheater bar for compressing the pinion crush sleeve?

yes I have access to those tools. Just got the LSD out today and popped off the axle seals, now I need to pop out the axle bearings.... was going to go borrow a slide hammer...and other way to get these out any easier? The seals were a B! all the youtube videos show guys just popping them right out. mine were like glued in! I bent the inner seals and had to pop it out from the edge

Oh they'll be stuck like dried baby **** on shag carpet, no doubt. I have used a slide hammer successfully. I've also had to drill one or two to weaken them to get them out.

Any Tips for getting the abs rings
Off the axles? I let em Soak in liquid wrench overnight. I have a 20 tin press and was thinking of just pressing em out but some posts say to just hammer it off through the stud holes. Any opinion either way?

Somewhat gentle heat and even whacking, hehe. It's an interference fit so, penetrating oil won't do much.

Dump the axles in a chest freezer over night (if you have one). Boil the ABS rings in a pot on the stove or heat 'em with the torch again. Quickly slip 'em together. Timing is everything here.

yeah, the exciter rings need to be on straight and in the right place or it'll royally fubar the ABS and TC systems.

Out of curiousity do you know where I might e able to pick new ones up in case I royal mess them up trying? I hear ford dealerships generally try to sell you whole new axles. Some of the sites I've looked at sell the 05-10 ones which I assume are the same as 11-14 but thought I'd ask

Well I got em off pretty easily actually. First one we heated up and was able to knock off though the stud holes with a screw driver. Second one was a little more stubborn, but ended up using a 3/8 6 inch extension and it came right off. The axle bearings came out easily and ended up having to use the slide hammer to get my pinion races out as well. Had to press the pinion itself out because it was super tight and hammering the end just wasnt doing it. Made the decidion today since I have the whole thing off the car to go ahead and take it in and get it sandblasted and powder coated, so the project is on hold for about a week ( I hate the delay), but figured this would keep it nice for the duration of the cars life, so probably worth doing. Anyway, Ill post pics when I get it back from the powder coaters.

Got my diff cover back today! Looks good. It matches almost exactly the bmr black hammertone pattern and color! Got their carrier bushing too so it almost looks like its a bmr diff cover! Anyway, spent the afternoon cleaning it out! Making sure we got all the sand out and tonight we will start reassembling it!
