R and P install kit

What is the difference between a master install and a install kit? The masters are $20 than the reg install. I don't need the carrier bearings, since they'll be wrong for my app.

Master install kits come with shims, seals, marking compond, etc...

Basic install kits come with bearings and races.

That's what I thought. I guess I'll get the master and sell the carrier bearings and races.

Ok another question. Do I get a new oil slingers in the master kit or do I need to buy a new one? Seeing as how the stupid ass that pressed off my old pinion bearing bent it to an unuseable "u" shape.

on a side note, I have found PORC to be 20% cheaper on master install kits then anybody else.

I got a master install kit from Complete Offroad for $75 (both Dana 44 and Ford 8.8) I can't remember what PORC's quote was but I think it was $69 for the Dana 44 and $89 for my 8.8. Complete didn't charge shipping either.

Well DTS was cheaper on the install kit. Plus they had it in stock and got it the same day.
