Rear End Pinion Bearings

  1. I am changing out the rear end gears in my 95 GT. I have new pinion bearings and was wondering if you think it is necessary to replace the pinion bearing cups.

    It looks like I would need a special tool to install them so I would rather not replace them, but since I have it all apart already I'd rather do it now if it is necessary. If you think it is necessary where would I get my hands on the tool to install them.
  2. Sorry, what I am talking about is the pinion bearing race. My manual calls them bearing cups. I realized that might have confused some people.
  3. I would replace the races.
    All you need are a hammer, punch, and bearing/seal driver.
  4. Definitely replace the cups. The cup and the cone should always be replaced together. The cup actually wears more than the cone.
