D60 crush sleeve nightmare.

d60 rear, is it Necessary to run a crush sleeve? I cannot get the sleeve to crush, I've used my big matco 1/2" impact in the axle to no avail, put the yoke in a vise to try and start it crushing and move it back to the axle to no avail as well. This thing will not budge. Can I set-up the gears without it?

Yes everything is in the correct spot and in the right direction.

we use the 1" impact that we use to take off semi wheels, crushes like nothing

You dont have to run a crush sleeve if you dont mind your pinion bearings failing in a few miles.


Put the sleeve in a press to get it started, crush it literally only a few thousandths. Once its started it should be easier to crush a bit more to get proper preload.

i haven't had luck with the press, it always ruins it, you need to run it and i have never gotten it to crush with an impact

ususally the 3/4" breaker bar with a 6' extension does the trick

good luck

You don't need the crush sleeve to set/adjust the gears. I would do that after everything is set-up

I've never seen a Dane 60 with a crush sleeve. What year is it ? Semi float ? Full float ?

Heat it torch, just to warm it up, toss it in, toss outer bearing it, yoke, but and start to crush it.

I have a 5' bar I bolt to the yoke and use a breaker bar with an extended handle to crush these, a 1/2" air gun usually won't work. Be sure to grease the nut and washer so everything turns easier, this actually makes a big difference. Sometimes I have to use the press first also but can distort the sleeve if not carefull.

Some of the aftermarket gear sets use them.

Why not just order a regular set without one ? Is there a case difference in some years ?
