Closed Knuckle Parts

top_page
product note

We stock the regular service closed knuckle parts for your 1963-1971 Dodge W200 Power Wagon with a closed knuckle Dana 44 Heavy Duty front axle which will have 12 bolt Knuckle Ball Hemisphere Seals. With a Closed Knuckle axle, the axle universal joints and king pin bearings are lubricated by very heavy oil or a viscous grease that will flow when the axle shafts rotate. A large multi-piece seal is bolted to the backside of the steering knuckle to keep lubricant in and water out. On poorly maintained closed knuckle axles or axles equipped with lockout hubs that are rarely used in 4x4, the upper king pin bearing and axle universal joint can suffer from lack of lubrication. The Ball Seals will usually weep some lubricant especially when standard gear oils are used as a lubricant. Submersion of the axle under water or condensation from temperature changes can cause moisture to build up inside the enclosed ball and lead to corrosion damage and part failures.

Differential and Pinion Bearings (Individual)

top_page
product note

There was a Dodge Dana 44HD differential Side Bearing change which according to Dana was effective with at least some 1967 and 1968 model year vehicles. My Dodge parts books however, list the change over year as 1969 so you will need to verify your bearing size for 1967 and 1968 trucks.
All bearings are not created equal for fit or durability, so we only stock first class, long lasting, Timken® Differential and Pinion Bearings for your Dana front axle. Timken® was and is a a major original equipment supplier of top-notch bearing components to Dana Spicer. Since I first started rebuilding Dana axles in the mid 1970's, I have found Timken® Bearings to be the most consistent in relation to the published dimensions of any bearing on the market which makes rebuilding an axle right the first time a WHOLE lot easier!
