I had to replace my blown track and checked the lower bearing and the outer race was cracked through. I replaced it with the old style (w/o the groove) and put the O-ring on the outside like we used too!!!!! I did not check the upper bearing though. Wish I had. Also the end of my axle, into the splined shaft, fell off when I slid off the lower gear.

Kraig,

Could you explain in a bit more detail on what bearing to use (part # or application possibly?) when replacing the "new" style bearings with the groove in them??? Are the upper(jack) and lower(drive) shafts are the same size as preivious ZR's?? Thanks!
