8.8 rear axle assembly help


Oct 22, 2006
I just recieved my frpp fully assembled 8.8 w/ 373's. The question i have is , the one nut on the axle that holds the brake lines on the one side has some sort of leaky breather integrated to it. The new axle assembly has just a regular bolt w/ no breather. Do i need to use the one with the breather? Id rather not. Maybe ford realized they didnt need it. Here is a pic below of the new axle with the reg. bolt and beneath it is a pic of the bolt w/ the breather.

heres a couple pics of the crap im throwing in the car
