Differential install

Hi all, will be having a MarkVIII aluminum pumpkin installed very shortly and I'm looking at installation kits that can be bought. I have everything I need i.e. Pumpkin, Traklok, ring and pinion gears, I thought it would be a good idea while everything was off to maybe change some of the little parts, you know axel seals, maybe bearings. Installation kits run up to $100.00, does anybody have any ideas of what pieces I can buy instead of a whole kits that I don't really need? Also the MarkVIII pumpkin IRS correct? need to know for sure in order to buy axel seals or bearings. By the way, the car has 67,700 miles on it.

If you're wanting to replace the little stuff, like bearings and seals, you need the install kit. If you bought everything separate, it'd be 2-3x what the install kit costs. If you are changing the ring and pinion, you are going to have to replace the crush sleeve and while you are there you might as well change the pinion seal and just for sh$8s and giggles, replace the pinion bearings. That's over half of an install kit.
