84 CJ7 Dana 30 Spindle.

Pulled the hub and spindle today and I noticed some rough spots on the spindle in the middle. Is that enough to warrant a replacement?

Clean it up with a wire wheel and reuse it.

Nope doesn't matter, what does is the seal mating surface.

Where did high steer come from based on the information given? For all we know it could be bone stock.

I looked at his profile? He already had his original answer. It was just a suggestion. If I had mine that far apart, I'd do it. I guess I shouldn't offer opinions on upgrades or changes based on assumptions if it's gonna upset people so much.

Who's upset? I was just curious where you came up with that as it looked like it came straight out of left field.

As I was removing the inner and outer races, I tagged the inside of the hub with the punch and created a burr. If I can remove it, I assume that would not create any issues ?

Knock it down with a file and emory cloth and it will be fine. It's not a wear surface with anything moving against it.

CSP,


Thank you for the suggestion. Won't do that again with the punch!
