Oh if there is a kit that's designed for the truetrac, then it might have the right bearings.
But if it's just a generic 8" install kit like I got with my 3.8 gears, then it will just have the 8" carrier bearings.
When I got this kit all the bearings were Japanese made Koyo bearings except for the small pilot bearing which was made in China. You would easily be able to source a single separate pilot bearing from a bearing shop if your not happy to use it.
And here is a blog I found when I was researching whether Ratech/Koyo bearings were any good or not.
Yep retainer is on top of the small pilot bearing in that photo. I know you said they are all timken bearings but just for interest sake can you double check the small pilot bearing and see if it is made in China.
Oh and check the length of the ring bolts. They should be a little longer for the true trac. Not sure how critical this is but Trav did mention it when I was researching it for my diff rebuild and the ones in the kit I got were a little longer then the ones I removed from the old diff.
Similar to in my kit but mine had made in China on it. I'm not really qualified to comment as my diff might blow up the minute I fit it to the car but for the amount of km's these cars are going to do as weekend drivers I don't think it's a huge problem. Anyway we will all find out the quality of the kits over the next few years I suppose.
