It won't necessarily be a hole, it just that there needs to be some space between the ends of the pressed in axle tubes and the carrier (inside, not draining out). Most Dana 30's I've done are fine without it. Do you want me to see if I can get a picture of mine? If I can see it without pulling the carrier or bearing caps

Cool. I won't be able to open the axle up until after Christmas. Wanna shoot me a PM in a few days? I don't want to ruin your build thread.

No worries, I think someone could benefit from this info, as I came back with no search results.

I kinda guessed where it needs to be and what would make sense. I gambled and here is where I drilled the holes.

passenger side



Driver side

So, I'm in the middle of reassembling the front axle with new gears. This dana 30 uses a crush sleeve on the pinion. Anyone know whats the best way to crush the sleeve. Is there a specific tool to hold the Yoke in place? I broke a bracket that held the Yoke just to try get the damn crush sleeve to compress. still need to go a little further.

Tried google. we both started scratching our heads

The axle is getting setup on Jack stands, I now understand why it's better to leave it under the vehicle. I just don't have enough space

Sorry I haven't gotten you the picture of a drain hole in a Dana 30 yet. Crush sleeve isn't needed, that's more for race cars. You can shim the pinion and torque to spec.

No worries,

check out the pics I posted. is that what you were referring to?


also, I can't shim the pinion. it doesn't have a seat for the shims. I think the factory Jeep Sleeve would probably be easier to crush. I'm hitting the dealer tomorrow to see if I can get one. I tried to crush the Yukon one, and reached 400ft/lb I stripped the nut and probably will need to fix the teeth on the pinion. So much for straight forward installation

Your picture looks like what I was talking about. What brand of gears are you putting in? Can you post a picture of the pinion? What about master install kit, brand?

I'm using Yukon gears and their master kit. I'll try to get a picture up of the new pinion. If the teeth on the pinion got a little damaged, is it ok to fix them? worried after putting that much torque on the mock-up nut

Lo2aY ... if the crush sleeve did not crush I doubt the pinion teeth got damaged. Or you mean probably the threads on the pinion? repairable, see last link

here some interesting read:

Thanks for the links. I think I'm going to try and get a factory crush sleeve from Jeep or Spicer and try to crush it. Very difficultly job on jack stands.

I've heard of people start to crush the sleeve in a vice to get the process started so the big initial crush isn't as much pressure, then install it and finish it in the axle.

That's an interesting thought. I'm actually going to try that since i have an extra spare. Thanks budd

Now the hunt starts for a new pinion nut. Not easy to find one in my neck of the woods.

that's awesome! love the expedition feel of that thing. Really cool.

Were you stuck in the sand or pushing through? I'm getting ready to buy a Gobi Rack, can't decide if I want a stealth rack or the other one.
