I have a Dana 60 on the rear and a Dana 44 on the front. I lost a bearing a few months ago and now have been getting into the habit of checking if any of my other hubs are getting hot. I've only had it back on the road for a couple days and only have a six mile trip to work. When I get to work they are ALL warm to they touch. Just seem weird for such a short trip. Any thoughts?
I know this post was a while back but turns out my Dana 60 was low on fluid. Since it's a full floater the bearings didn't have enough lubrication. I thought it was high enough but with a SOA and the axle turned up it actually needed to be higher. Long story short I now have a new 60 in the rear. Just a FYI for anyone running this setup.
I've never worked on a Dana 60 full floating axle but isn't that when you have a spindle and the bearings ride on that? Which would mean they are a sealed unit with wheel bearing grease? On yours it sounds like the gear oil lubricates the bearings. Is that right?
