Dana 44 rear wheel bearing size

I searched and could not find a definite answer. Im trying to replace both my rear wheel bearings (get this creaking noise) and as i said not sure what size to get and what parts. Its not leaking so i donít think i need a seal and can just get the bearings and retaining ring. I know you have to drill/pry the old ones off and get the new ones pressed

So my question is, Is this all i need to get? http://www.ringpinion.com/b2c/Produc...rce=DiffWizard

can you put a ling to a better/different one?

have a 2004 LJ with a dana 44

thank you

Dana 44 uses a SET10 set.

Here is a write-up for changing out the D44 axle shaft bearing and seal.

Once you remove the seal you are asking for leaks. Spend the 5 bucks and get some seals. You will thank yourself later.

Did you install new bearings and was this the problem? I've got the same diff and have a slow speed rear wheel creak, and my outer seal and axle tube is wet with diff fluid.

Ok thanks, I'm wondering if mine isn't possibly the LSD as well. The creaking sounds like it could be the clutches binding when they shouldn't.

But since my bearing seal is leaking I need to inspect and replace them anyway was well.

Update: Bearings wont be pressed until "maybe" today, but most likely tomorrow (saturday). The axle shafts came out very easy and only took 10 mins to remove both and another 40 to remove the old bearings (drill and chisel method)

Update #2: the shop that was supposed to press my bearings called and said they aren't supposed to be pressed on the shaft but hammered into the axle. Clearly they have no idea what there doing so I picked them up and am bringing them to another forum members garage Tuesday AM so official update will be Tuesday PM. Sorry for the delay. This is annoying

Well it's not the wheel bearings. Replaced both rear bearings and still makes the noise. I will say not as loud or as often but it's defiantly still there. Guess U joints are next
