Hey there,

For the rear hub and front spindel you need 4 Pcs 13x19x4 and 4 pcs 8x14x4

For the Bulkhead Pinion Gear (Front and Rear) Assembly you need 6 13x20x4

For Diffs 6 pcs 8x14x4 (Use the composite Bearing Holder). This is what I use cause Its a lot lighter or you can use the bigger 8x16x5 (Not sure if its the correct dimension but its what I use for the Xb8. You dont need the composite bearing holder for this.

And the steering post bearing 4 pcs 6x10x3 (Not sure again cause I just re used this from my xb8. It fits most buggy steering post.

clutch bell bearing 2 pcs 5x12x4

Should I get Revolutions, ceramic revolutions, rubber or metal? If possible please specify the type for each bearing size.

Thanks

I did not get any ceramic ones cause I change bearing a lot. 5 is to 1 is the price ratio. My friends however told me that ceramics are way smoother and last longer so it really depends on what you want.

But just a tip for the bulkhead bearing ( Pinion Gear Bearing ) Get the ceramic ones. I will try this when my bearing get here.

Revolutions are one side metal shield and the other side rubber shield.

The revolution bearings are a good balance one metal shield and one rubber shield. Ceramic bearings in off road are a waste of time and $$. They get grity very quickly.

I do not understand why I need the following bearings, where should I fit them:
8x16x5 Revolutions688-RSZ
13x20x4 RevolutionMR2013-RSZ

I only find the following in the mannual (excluding clutch bearings):
8x14x4 RevolutionsMR148-RSZ
13x19x4 RevolutionMR1913-RSZ
6x10x3 RevolutionsMR106-RSZ

Thanks

8x16's can be used on the diffs instead of the 8x14s with the sleeve...this is personal preference as these bearings aren't the problem, so you can use either one.


the 13x20 fit the '10 spec pinion/bulkhead housing
the 13x19 fit the '09 spec and earlier pinion/bulkhead housings
