Yea, you don't even have to remove the wheels. You can go from the edges. The only issue is getting around the tire bulge. I've done it with two lazors. Space them off the wheel edges pointing front. Then measure the spots on a piece of plywood 3' out and 6' out.

I dont have the stock tie rod so I really have no ideal to tell when my toe in/ toe out is centered.
yank the caliper....measure to the front of the rotor and the back of the rotor along the axle.

D60 This got me thinking I should replace the pinion seal on my '11.

Parts listings suggest the old school 60 seal of 42449 fits but the latest seal appears to be a 2009802.

I already have a 42449 sitting here from an old 60 install kit . Is there a compelling reason to order a 2009802?

[486] rattle it tight enough to get good bearing preload, then stake the nut

standard procedure for doing a pinion seal is to reuse the same crush sleeve

I'd rather not yank the carrier to check pinion bearing preload.... UNLESS can I get away with checking preload with in the lash between pinion and ring gear?

I wasn't anticipating tearing the whole axle down...
Pull the sleeve, stick it in a mic and then install a spacer and shim stack of that height.

xdaltonx I have a pair of warn premiums, as well as a pair of rcv inner gears. Would it be worth while of swapping in the rcv? Or just carry as spares?

Interesting, I wasn't aware these were made. Been awhile since I researched lockouts for these since I have gone so long between breaks.

Just itself. The breaks are actually pretty well contained within the lockout itself.

All mine have been the female splines of the lockout that go over the stub, and the out gears that engage the bearing.

They are for sale several places online, it looks like $110-$120, some places listed as $65 (per side, maybe?).

This is the image I found - I do not know if that helps anyone visualize how it fits. They are referring to it as a "splash shield".

I've broke 3 in 3 years. 1 broke and I lost function from it. The last two I didn't know broke until I removed them go service bent ball joints, they still functioned.

Damn! 3/4" bolts in your rod ends? What rod ends are you using? Nice axle!
