2012 320FQDS What Wheel Bearing Kit?

I'm planning to tackle this job following the procedure outlined here:

Wheel Bearing Service, Lippert 5200Lb Axle

Not sure what kit to buy. Can someone who has done this suggest what kit to order? Was thinking of ordering one of the bearing kit's from here:

5200 lbs Axle Trailer Bearings and Races | etrailer.com

Thought I'd just replace the bearings since I have to buy seals, etc.

My Axle is a NV#132113.

Thanks for any thoughts/wise advice!

Best Regards,

My .02 cents worth. Buy seal from e trailer. Get a bearing packer tool from Sears which runs about $22. Get a high temp disc bearing grease, lots of paper towels and new cotter pins. Easy to do. If you want the comfort factor of having a spare set of bearings then go ahead. I pack mine once a year and the bearings still look new. Lip pert makes ez lube axles but I don't like them. They are convenient but if the rear seal leaks now you get to buy or clean a brake assembly. Probably replace cleaning isn't really a good option. Many will disagreed but I am guilty og over maintaining my rolling stock. I refuse to be broken down on the side of the road because I got lazy. Good luck.

Go to your local napa with parts in hand and they'll either have it or have it the next day.
No shipping charges.

Anyone ever tried Bearing Buddies on our axles? Will they even work on our axles? I have the 6K lb axles but haven't had to rework my bearings yet... Thoughts??

Not sure yet Turbs, I haven't had to service my axles just yet. Guess I'll make that an inspection point before we try to head out for the first time this year. Thanks!!

Pop the little cover off your axle cover and you should see a rubber boot.
Remove that to reveal the grease zerk.
