    Just wondering how easy the pinion bearing is to replace on an hj61. I have a full float rear end with factory cable lockers and just want to know if replacement is the same as all diffs in cruisers or is there something different that I have to do.

    I do believe they are the same, bit a pain getting the race out.

    Replacing the pinion bearings in this diff will be the same as any. In order to do it properly, the diff needs to come out, be torn down, and both bearings replaced.
