I know I could just use silicone but I've been using these gaskets on all my GM vehicle with a skim of silicone and never have a leak.

        Put this on my dad's 2003 Silverado 1500. His has the 10 bolt locker differential. Differential is made by Eaton and is the G80. We did not use additional sealant, which some people do. It has only been sealed for a few hours now, so it is too early to tell if there are any leaks. Go onto youtube and look for "Gear Oil & Differential Gasket Change G80 Escalade, Tahoe, Yukon" for a pretty handy guide.

        18 months still no leaks

        Comments about Felpro Rear Axle Gasket Set:

        This was a perfect fit on our 2001 Chevy Silverado 1500 extended cab 4x4 5.3L. I went ahead and did this job when the rear axle seal went out. The bolt heads were rusted/stripped so get some extras if you're doing this job. Also, go ahead and change the fluid in the diff while you're at it. I used Permatex High Tack Gasket Sealant (4 oz) to help keep the gasket in place and to help it seal properly, but remember, less is more with the sealant. 18 months and still no leaks so I would say it works great!!

            A:

            A differential gasket can be used in place of 100 percent silicone sealant when repairing or rebuilding a differential. If a gasket is used, no sealant is required, and subsequent removal of the differential cover may require less effort.
