Started to install my new tom woods custom front driveshaft and snapped a strap bolt at the d30. I guess that turned into a whole Saturday project. Can't wait!

Removed the axle bearing races and oil seals on my Dana 44. I hope to reinstall everything tomorrow.

Question: Should the axle bearings be greased prior to installation?

I just had new axle bearings (Yukon) retainers and outer seals installed on shafts. I wasn't sure if the bearings are greased at the factory and if that is sufficient. I tried searching the forum and couldnt locate a definitive answer.

Buckeyenative, the grease on the bearing from the factory is only to keep if from rusting. You should always clean off the shipping grease. Not sure what the Dana 44 requires.

I resealed the bottom cover on my dana 300. It was raining outside and it did not go pretty. I used the "the right stuff" ,which was very tacky and whipped like whip cream. Never used that before. It did not want to smear. If I had to bet it would be that it will leak again. I did a good job cleaning it but sealing and assembling was u-u-ugly trying to get those rear bolts in while the transfer case is still mounted under the car.

Yes chief!!!!
sorry !!!!
lol



Changing the 2 pipes between the engine and the oil filter; one of the old was drilled by the frame: bad position while bad working of the previous owner; the new are a little bit longer and curved, so I have changing the position of the filter and this problem is solved

While looking for a way to mount up my sway bars when they are disconnected, I decided to just rip them off and start over. I had the stock links modified so that they were removable at the axle, but with the links attached when unhooked, finding a place to strap them out of the way while wheeling, was becoming a losing battle. the tires always seemed to snag them when flexing, and tear the zip ties loose that were holding them up.
I figured if I could eliminate the links, that would make things easier.

I dug around in the scrap pile, the bolt bucket, and the spare parts shelf.
An old driveshaft tube, some 1/2" pipe, a few long 5/8" bolts, and a few spare Poly bushings that came with my shocks.
$10 at the local hardware store for the lynch pins, a little cutting, a little grinding, a little welding, and a little drilling and I had new end links.
