ToyotaJeep I am looking at narrowing my front SD60 to the same width as a C and C 14 bolt, 63" WMS to WMS. I want to keep the drivers side stock as there is little room there right now.

Is there a chart of axles that fit the inner length on this axle? I have seen it for older axles. I am just wondering if there is an OEM axle that would interchange.

Maybe I just need to buy new which is fine, or get one shortened.

Thanks
Someone will probably correct me, but Im pretty sure it's 45*.

UPNO4 OK so this is a super long busy thread and this could have been answered but has anyone had the Lower Ball Joint Taper get to big? In other words for clarity I can not get the lower to actually tighten up.

I want to say this has been stumbled on a few times... but maybe not in this thread yet.
I ran major/minor diameters into this calculator some time ago.

Taper and angle calculation

Got similar to what this guy is saying:

wellstig1 I'm not sure if any of you guys noticed, but ecgs is now selling 05+ 1550 stub shafts in 35 and 40 spline and inners in whatever length you want.

I found this thread from Reid saying they have these bolts to allow the tierod to be flipped on top but I don't know how that would work. I assume you would have to ream the drivers side knuckle to fit the taper of the passenger side tierod end and use that bolt with the taper coming from the bottom. On the passenger side maybe the drivers side tierod end has the same taper and just drops in??? I'm going to try and pull it apart this weekend and see what it looks like. Anyone know what taper reamer I would need to fit the passenger side bolt through tierod end?

I would like to use the factory super duty parts since they are so beefy and easy to find.

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?
02-03-2020 07:14 PM
[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.
