Everything was included to rebuild carrier and pinion. Also plenty of shims for proper setup.

Richmond Ring & Pinion Install Kit

Summit RacingSummit Racing Verified Purchase

RMG-8310211
This kit included all the parts I needed for a ring & pinion install, including the desirable Timken brand pinion & carrier bearings. (Axle bearings and seals not included.) I was unhappy, however, with a few things. First, the slim selection of carrier bearing shims required me to sand/grind thicker ones to meet my needs. Second, the supplied pinion nut is NOT the standard 1 1/4"! Plan to have in your tool box a 33 mm socket for that, or purchase a new pinion nut elsewhere. Finally, the pinion shims were smaller ID/OD than the original. I didn't need them, but if I had there would have been some slop there. Finally, the included gasket did not fit my application; but the included silicon gasket-maker worked fine. ...read more

This kit worked awesome for me. Also bought the ring and pinion set at the same time it all got delivered together. Assembly was a breeze this kit gives you everything you need to set your rear end up.

Wrong parts for a truck rear end

Summit RacingSummit Racing Verified Purchase

RMG-8310211
make sure they send the right stuff for a truck because the bearings are different... And the threads was pulling off the bolts when torquing them in and would not lock down

Wasted Time

Had to several returns because nobody took the time to look at the special instructions concerning the Eaton Posi-unit I bought. It required larger bearings. Wasted hours in line

Pinion Nut Size

Summit RacingSummit Racing Verified Purchase

RMG-8310211
First, Summit is wonderful. The only problem with this kit is the pinion nut. I bought this for a GM 10 bolt. The pinion nut is an odd size, not 1 1/4 inch and not 1 5/16 inch. The threads were OK, but the socket size was not the same as the original 1 1/4 inch socket. Everything else was fine. I have ordered a 33 mm socket to see if that helps. Bearings were all nice, Timken. ...read more

Quality kit. Comes with TIMKEN bearings for an 8.5" rear. Carrier bearing race is 2.891 OD and the bearing is 1.625 ID. Comes with lock washers for the ring gear but are not used, at least not from the factory. This kit is NOT for an 8.6", ten bolt rear. Ref. MY4BY.com
