Question Dana 60 u-joint removal tool? Anyone make one??

I have a ball joint removal kit but it sucks. I'd like to find something that has a inch and three eighths hole in it that is solid mounted. I'm thinking about just having the sleeve that I use with the ball joint tool now welded on. And yes I know, Hammer, socket, vice... But I want something to use on the trail.

sounds like you need something like this.

what brand is your ball joint kit? i have the OTC kit and it is great. I also have the HF ball joint adapter kit that works well with it.

for u-joints, the HF ball joint kit may be OK, and then you could weld whatever you wanted to it.

I as well may want to say use HF ball joint kit and just modiify it as you like, like weld the correct adapter on it and weld something to the "C" to mount in the hitch or something to make it stable as you beat on it.

fuck that hunk of shit, the only thing those work good for is pissing me off as the adapters and layerd peice fall apart every time you move.


$$$$700 from snap on but worth every penny.

their new ball joint tool hase locking snap rings so that every adapter clips on to the cframe, the frame is bigger, it has a pin or a flat clip ring head for the screw, and the cframe has a flat spot in the back so it easinly mounts in a bench vice.

then there is 2 more interchangable head that you can buy, one of with is fuckin perfect for 1480/1485 ujoints in axle shafts.

Air hammer worked wonders tonight. I'd still like some thing for the trail. I'll stop the Snap On man next week.

I like that tool. A bit big for one ton stuff, I might just make a smaller one.

Price is way better than the Snap On one.

I've used the tiger tool before too and it is awesome. If I had the money I'd buy one but other things keep coming up.

maybe stupid question..but why doesn't anybody use the old bench top vice, and socket?

dont have to worry about juggling anything. stick it in the vice, and go to town. no need to worry about setting up tools

go for it.

and after you spend 1hr shooting the socket across the shop, reseting the axle shaft after every 3-4 whacks, chewing the axle shaft up with the jaws of the vice, and mashing your fingers or getting shrapnel shot into your hand from the socket chipping off or you steel slug shrooming over you understand why.

socket trick works good on new ish joints that arent rusted in, but after a few years its a different story.

For years I've used a torch to blow the center of the cross out then just tap the caps in, works very well with the rusted crap we get here, sometimes you can't even tell if the c-clips are there or not. I have been wondering recently though if the heat that the axle shaft sees may cause weakness.

That tigertool setup looks pretty nice, I see they have a removal/install combo that looks like it would handle about any issue, might have to get me one.

You're welcome Kevin LOL

You should consider signing up for a yellow star (become a supporting Vendor). Your product would be very popular here

The only issue I had with the tigertool was when I had the caps froze in a little too much and the flange was broken instead of the caps coming off. Mostly my own fault for not paying more attention to the caps. I just kept hammering on them with the impact.

Hi Jon,

I will look into this as we work with a few other 4x4 forums and have pretty good results.
