What is the benefit of swapping to a series II? If not big benefit I would save the head ache and stay with the Series I with the 3.54s.

Don't Series Is have ball bearings in the stub shafts and Series IIs have tapper rollers?

I thought the series 2 is supposed to be better because of the tapered roller bearings in the outputs being less prone to failure. My old series 1 has a lot of miles on it and its easier to find brake parts, etc. on line for the newer axle. I guess its all moot now that I'm faced with tearing the diff down now if not for the fact that I have a bunch of new parts already in transit for the series 2.
