You may want to consider one of the differential kits from Rock Auto, they come with all the seals, shims, bearings, etc. that you need...

Dana 30 Reverse and CJ Master Install Kit
Thanks a lot!
I picked up a master install kit from National Driveline for a little over $100.
I had no idea why I said 30. What I have is a rear Dana 44. Dana 30 is what I want to have in the future for the front for my 62 cj5. Sorry for the confusion.
Is your Dana 44 a tapered or flanged axle?
Don't know. Other than disassembly, how can I tell?
If there is a cap in the center of the hub covering a big nut, it is a tapered axle.
Tapered axle has the little cap in the center of the hub with a nut under it like this...
Flanged axle has no cap/nut (the orange part on this example axle is what you will see in the center of your wheel...
Your '62 will be a tapered two piece style. If you still have the '76 parts Jeep, that has a flanged one-piece axle.
Thought the dana 44 rear went out with the 1975 model. The 76 should be a 2 piece AMC 20 axle.
This is what I have...
Pull the cap off, you should see a big nut and pin.
= Tapered as mentioned.
And then you are going to need to find a large hub puller, a BFH, some new swear words, and search the site for how to get the m-ff-...bleepity bleepin hubs off.
Is one better than the other? Are they interchangeable? I have a 76 cj5 with (I think) an AMC 20. If better, could I swap them? Not the whole axle, just the flanged axle by the flanged one.
Located on the Technical Index page.
I was wrong regarding your '76 CJ in post#10. It should have an AMC 20. Personally, I would prefer the '62 D44, even with the small brakes. The 20 will likely have a tall gear, and the spring perches are likely welded at wider centers. The 20 is also a 2 piece hub, but uses splines. Its not really much of an improvement over the early 2 piece D44 you have. You could swap the complete axle assy, but maybe only the brakes would interchange with the D44, but they are otherwise entirely different axles.
I tried calling you around 6:45 regarding your rear crossmember. I was travelling past you around 8pm with a rear crossmember to measure, but you didn't get the message.
Sorry, Donny! I saw your call but I was at my daughter's recital in a dark theatre full of people. Let me know when can we meet so I can measure and look at a whole piece for once. Thanks a lot!
So...knowing I have a tapered Dana 44, does anyone have the part number of the bearings? Sometimes I can source them cheaper if looked up individually than in a kit.
