front diff rebuild??

the pinion bearing in the front diff of my 2005 xlt is shot. i want to rebuild the diff and install all new seals but i am unsure of the correct bearing and seal kit i need? i was looking at this TIMKEN Part # DRK335 kit on rock auto. is this the correct kit i need? any help would be appreciated. i am a mechanic so doing the work is not a big deal but i am a lousy parts guy lol

Not sure about the Timken number but the National one would be RA335.

Makes sense... National and Timken numbers are usually the same!
