Rear Wheel Bearing Parts

I have been asked by my mechanic to order the parts to replace the rear bearings in my NAS '97 D90 SW. I went to Rovers North but all of the parts seem to be for the front and I can't figure out which parts also work on the rear.

http://www.roversnorth.com/store/c-1...-assembly.aspx

Anyone bored enough to help me round up a parts list (with part numbers) for replacing my rear bearings?

I'd like to replace any optional seals and gaskets while they're in there. Suggestions welcome.

Thanks in advance!!!

Front and rear are the same. If you are just doing the bearings then get 2 Timken set #37 for each wheel or you can buy a kit from AB - http://www.roverparts.com/Parts/9002D.cfm

You can reuse your locking nuts and fold over tab washer or get a new nut (p/n RFD100000) which I highly recommend.

Hans, you're welcome to bring the truck by my house and we can do the bearings in a couple of hours. It's super easy.

Then again, PPR is awesome and I'm sure they could knock it out really quickly, too.

You can get the bearings locally at any auto parts store for about $14 each. Timken SET37, SKF BR37, FAG KIT38 or National A-37.
RTC3511 hub seal. Maybe a lock washer and the gaskets. Trevor at Rovahfarm will send the seals, etc. in a small priority USPS flat rate box so you should have them in a couple days.

If it were me, I would do rear rotors and pads while I was in there as it is not much more time in labor.

Chris, Thanks much for the offer! The dealership is replacing my new rear diff (long story. VERY long story). I am having them do the bearings while they have it apart.

No worries, Hans. That said, you don't have to pull the hub and bearings to remove the diff so if they want to charge you to do the bearings, the offer still stands.

Understood - and, again, thanks for the offer. That's very kind of you.

I've had the back of my track apart twice before -- in my own garage -- for this same $%^&* issue. Now I am out of time and out WAY of patience. When I get it back, I don't want to touch the rear end with a wrench for another 130k miles.

That is to say... not until I take off the Rock Ware trailing arms and replace the upper ball joint.
