Use the stock bearings unless you have a 3rd member that has no center pin to float the axles (mostly Auburn Sure Grip units), or are going to do a lot of drag racing.... The green bearings are very good, also used in the dana 60 axles, but they cost a bit more than the stockers and the stockers handle the side load better. The only real advantage of the green bearings in "standard" use is not having to set axle lash, or regreasing them every 100K or so...... My 2 cents
