Re: Front axle ujoint questions

As it was stated the u-joints have clips on the inside of the yoke ears. If you have access to a ball joint press- they make changing these quick and easy. I only use Spicer U-joints, non greasable. There are two different size u-joints for Dana 44 axle shafts, the early open knuckle (pre-73) used Spicer 5-260X which have smaller u-joint caps. The later axles used Spicer 5-760X which are larger. They are both 1310 series joints. As far as the slinger- you can get them here https://torqueking.com/product/40460...shaft-slinger/

I've also had great service from www.northerndrivetrain.com- they will drop ship from Spicer as well.

Might as well replace the spindle bearings while you're in there too, along with all the seals. Pickup spindle bearing kits, part number SBK-1. This kit will have the spindle bearing and both rubber seals.
