Yes, as far as I'm aware they're the same.

Glad this is still up, years of write-ups I've done were messed up as I used photobucket to host and they got rid of 3rd party hosting without paying. Pretty lame. Flickr is still good for it thankfully.

I ordered the whole assembly and expected it to include the breather because all the pictures had one when you type that part number. It includes the bearing and seal. So I am trying to tap out the old breather so I can put it onto the new casing but it won't budge.

Breather took quite a bit of force to hammer out for me.

First, thanks DB, excellent write up. I did the seal, bearing and breather repair this past weekend, and yes, "while you're in there" -- I replaced the gear oil. I paid $17 a quart for the Ford stuff. The color of the old stuff was pretty dark, and I had added about a half a quart of some 70W90 laying around to replace what was leaking out. Sorry so verbal, here is my comment -- never before had I heard what I have seen described as the whine or groan of the LSD when turning the wheel and cold. Never in 4 years of ownership, and now at 134K. Well I hear it now -- very pronounced. I am hopeful that I can find some research that informs me to replace the Ford unicorn stuff -- or just not worry about it. Again, thanks DB, at least I am not leaking everywhere!

I used oreillys generic gear oil. A lot cheaper and as good in my opinion.
