    My new LuK TO bearing has a metal rod in the slot where the fork slips in. Does this rod go inside of the fork or on the outside? Does it matter?

    Their website only shows this diagram with no rod

    I don't believe it makes a difference. Just make sure to get the spring fingers under the lip of the bearing and you should be all set ;)

    Thanks Joe. Why does my old TO bearing not have that rod in the slot where the fork inserts , but the one from my parts Jeep and this new LuK one do? I guess what I am not saying so clearly, is what in the heck is it for?

    I suspect that it is to prevent the collar from spinning instead of the actual bearing. Could be wrong though..
