So, I am putting another 99-04 GT rear under a V6 and am going to be looking into what it may need before install.

I have thought about replacing the bearings on the axles on my 95 (also has a 99-04 GT rear under it) with the National Bearing #RP-5707.

Has Anyone already done this. The mechanic who works at my shop has said that he does this will every solid rear axle he owns when he is rebuilding the rear end.

For the cost of bearings/seals it's negligible. I'd do it in a heartbeat. Easy to do in our out but while it's out you can clean it up and paint it pretty much easier. :) I'd go through the rear clutch pack and third member bearings to insure it's in good shape. Like the old Fram commercials, "you can pay me now or pay me later".
