You were careful to keep the carrier caps in order because their positions are not interchangeable?

I took photos before I touched anything but this axle had already been worked on (taken apart) by the previous owner. He never finished but as you can see, the fluids were already drained and the diff had surface rust. How would one determine the correct way to place the carrier caps?

Well after doing some research, it seems that most times the factory will put a mark on the carrier side bearing caps and one on the housing in line with each other so you know what direction to install them in. I will have to take a close look at my pair and my housing... hopefully I have these marks.

Frankly, I'm not sure on the Dana's however Ford rears are never marked. If it's been into before, many guys will make the marks your talking about. The Ford 8.8 has arrows pointing out so there's only two possible combos. Mounting the cap on and checking the fit at the mating edge will normally show if it's on the correct side. The alloy IRS 8.8" has no arrows which makes many possible combos. Almost no way to find the right position on those. Remember the Dana's need a case spreader to remove and install the carrier.

case spreader is a good idea, however it can be done without.... just a little harder and takes more time
