i have the long field versions from back in the days of Bobby and good parts....... work fine. i assume the new owners of the company make them well still. def prefer them over the bearing and tinny seal that is normally in there.

Longfield Dana 60 Spindle Bushing, Teflon

I have had them in a 1976 HP D44 for about six years (6000-7000 miles). I replaced them a few months ago when I had to replace the spindles. They were still holding a seal and looked the same as when I installed them before I removed one of them. I couldn't figure out any way to remove them without damaging them. I think they are outstanding alternative to spindle bearings.

I'm pretty sure that you still use the thrush washer. Is that how you did it BDK?

Thrust washer, oil seal and slinger yes. Don't use the spindle bearing seal. I got this from Wild Horses via email before I installed them the first time. They are very helpful and respond to emails quickly.

I had to cut off the lip on a pair for a 44. Couldnít get the snap ring under the lockout on. Stationary belt sander makes quick work of it. I believe I slapped some grease on them when I put them in.

If your spindle seals are good then why would these be necessary? Just curious. I would think as long as your running the snap ring on your stub this shouldnt be an issue.

I have run them on Dana 44's and Dana 60's for years, I like them much more then the bearing.

They eliminate the spindle bearings, one less thing to fail.

Surprised no one makes an oilite bronze spindle bushing. I put the Longfield spindle bushings in my kingpin D60 when I built it in 2014 and they are wallowed out now. Think its allowing the axle shaft to move around more than I'd like so I put standard bearings back in with the new seal design which is a bit simpler than the old style. Seems like it will seal better too

Because they don't last with road use. Your bronze bushings lasted ~5yr. A bearing will last 20-30 or as long as it stays sealed and lubricated.

Odd since Toyota used them for ages and they rarely wore out. Yet I destroyed spindle bearings on a D60 to the point I kept a extra set on hand due to poor sealing. I now have Bobby's spindle bushings in the new rig.
