    Default Dana 44 shaft diameter

    Well, after a successful tranny repair, had the axle seal go on rear drive axle, passengers side. Decided to replace by side seals, bearings and retainers.
    All looked good, but today the passengers side started leaking. Pulled the axle and found tbis5

    It looks like the retainer backed off. Going to pull everything and see what damage was done to the axle shaft.
    Anyone have, or know where to get dimensions of the Dana44 rear axle? Need where seal,bearing and retainer are pressed.
    Been searching for awhile, but no joy
    Bless those who serve beneath the deep, through lonely hours their vigi keep.
    May peace their mission ever be,
    Protect each one we ask of thee.
    Bless those at home who wait and pray, for their return by night or day.

    Try calling the bearing company (like Timken). They usually have listings for everything. You just have to find the right person willing to look it up for you.

    After some research, apparently, unbeknowsnt to me, you do not heat up the retainer, which I did. So just bought all new and had my son just press them on at work. No new issues. I checked the other side and it was also pulling out. Bearing looked good, so just replaced the retainer.

    Sofar so good

    I've heated them in a pinch, but I can see that happening.


    As long as the people remain armed,
    government knows that it cannot rule over the people by force.
    Those who stand in defiance of unconstitutional laws
    do so out of duty, honor, oath and love of country.
