New to working on cars, have a 68 coupe and need a bit of help. I replaced the rear gears and need to put new bearing on the axle shafts. I got those out and the guy that is going to press the new bearings on asked if i got the lock rings also? Are the seals the same thing as the lock ring? I got the kit from summit for the rear end, the deluxe kit that also had the wheel bearings and seals Part rat3007k is that all i need or are the lock rings different than the seals? Help:)

Here you go: . Almost to the bottom of the page.

My "lock rings" are actually "tack welded" to the axle to prevent the axle from coming out of the car under corner loading at speed.

For everyone else, this is a great page for all types of 9" information. Read it and impress your friends (especially the female friends). Ask her if she wants to hear about your 9".
