if you're swapping in a NEW diff that doesn't have bearings, get those too. otherwise just the seals. if you're not pulling the pinion out for any reason, dont bother replacing the seal there. it's not fun.

what are the circlips? I guess ill get the axle seals and circlips. Where is a good place to get them? The dealer, online?

Its a used 1.8 diff, driveshaft, and halfshafts, so I shouldent need bearings.

Anything else I should get while im under there? I have solid diff mounts.
