Joe,

Contact Dave Huson in Longmont, CO. He always has rear bearings. Usually has sleeves but you might consider new sleeves as these are the items that take the most wear. He sells in these classifieds all the time.

Good Luck,
Terry

Regarding sleeves...spend the small extra $$ for the "better" sleeve available in dealer catalogs.

Oh, and on bearings, mike each roller, both ends...you want .495 or better (.500 when new) on the diameter, with only tiny, minimal (best if none) pitting on rollers. You will want to specify this request with any seller, to avoid disappointment.

You are not likely to find NOS, so start with your own bearings and check them. It is rare for the inner set to be too worn or pitted for reuse.

Do NOT buy new solid roller bearings if you intend to drive the car much. Most dealers will warn you of the same thing. When used as outer bearings, they can be hard on the axle...not so much so if used inboard by the differential.

Thanx Scott for your info, I was planning on buying new sleeves, if I could only find good used bearings. I thought I would put out that I'm looking for both, in the event, someone has both available...I have two bearings I could use for the other and order some new for the inner from a dealer

If I remember correctly, Glen Chaffin's sleeves and the same hardness as the originals. I gather that not all new sleeves are.
