Default Rear End Replacement Question

I have a case of the one wheel burnouts!! I also have the ring and pinion gears. What will I need to purchase to rebuild the rear end? Just the traction-lock rebuild kit or the whole master bearing rebuild kit, or both? I'd like to do it right. I guess the royal purple oil is recommended for the case. Thanks for the suggestions!

well if your doing gears deffently install all new bearings and seals. to rebuild your traction lok you just need the $50 kit. when rebuilding it do a little trick to help make your rear clamp better. take 2 good clutches and 2 good plates. install these with the new clutches. it will be harder to install but your rear will clamp alot harder and not slip as much when using slicks. make sure when you get the bearings make sure you get the wheel bearings to. if you doing it make sure you get a rear main girdle this well also help strenghten the rear. they put pressure on the main caps so htey dont blow out. plus you get the added advantage of a drain plug

now do you use the two plates and clutches from the old one instead of two new ones or add the 2 old ones in with all the new ones? I probably dont need the girdle...no drag slicks yet!!!

Also, do you mean the wheel bearings that go next to the rotors or pinion bearings?
