Alloy USA Dana 44 Chromoly Axle Shaft Kit (12135)

Hi,

I am about to order this kit tomorrow and had a question whether the kit includes the retaining plate as well? The descriptions I have read say that it includes the items 1, 2, 3, and 5 from the following diagram. What about item 4 (i.e. the retaining plate).



If its not included, where can I source it? I don't want to take the bearings off the old shafts to get to the retaining plates. I would rather use the older set as a spare (complete).

Thanks in advance for the input. The kit is http://www.4wd.com/productdetails.as...95&partID=3989

Great, I'll try them tomorrow morning.

BTW, I am going with the kit rather than changing the seal (and possibly the bearing) after prices from the local dealer nearly gave me a heart attack! I must admit, owning a Jeep in a foreign country is a luxury and parts tend to be at a premium. Unfortunately, Spicer was out of stock as well. Hence the kit (its only marginally more expensive than the parts for one side). Go figure.

I think the plate differs slightly depending on if you have disk or drum brakes, so make sure you get the right one. Also means that if the site doesn't ask what brakes you have, then you know it's not included.

Order them from here:

Ask Dave to ship them with the proper backing plates and bearings pressed on. He will be more than happy to do it. Drums or Disks are dependant on which backing plates you need.

Good point, TJ with rear disk brakes were never offered in New Zealand. So we just have to live with drum brakes.

I would have, but he does not ship items to overseas addresses and I am in New Zealand. Its a pain to order stuff because I have to deal with companies who are willing to export.

Order em up quick to get in line, as they are on back order everywhere here. I have set on order I'm told end of march for a ship date. We will see if they are telling the truth.

Well, a couple of places that had indicated they would have them, today are saying its back order till end April '08 Doesn't help me in getting my problem sorted. I have found a seal and bearing locally that should at least now get me going while contemplate on this a bit more.

Is there anyone in the states you could trust to have them shipped to them for free then you pay shipping to NZ from there?

Most online vendors ship them completely ready to bolt in.
