Parts for 1985 to 1993 Dodge and Plymouth Full Size 4x4s with Dana 44 Front Drive Axles

In the United States, Dodge introduced a new Dana 44 front axle with a Vacuum Controlled Central Axle Disconnect (CAD) system instead of lock out hubs for the 1985 model year. The newly introduced CAD axle used a linear vacuum motor to shift a sliding collar between the differential output shaft and left inner axle shaft. The first version, which was built for the 1985-1987 model years, features a large needle bearing pressed into the end of the left axle tube to support the inner shaft next to the u-joint yoke. 1988-1993 axles use a smaller needle bearing inside the left axle tube adjacent to the CAD system to support the inner axle shaft. Other than the left side CAD related parts, many of the axle components used in these 1985-1993 axles are identical to those used in 1980-1984 non-CAD axles (non CAD axles were still built for export into the late 1980's). The CAD system did allow shift-on-the-fly 4x4 engagement, but vacuum operated CAD systems can get unreliable with age due to component wear and vacuum loss issues. The last year for this generation of CAD axle was 1993. For 1994, Dodge retained a vacuum CAD system, but the 1993 and prior, dead spindle/serviceable wheel bearing configuration was replaced by a live spindle/unitized wheel hub.

Axle Identification

top_page
photo

All 1985-1993 Dodge Dana-Spicer Model 44 Front Axles in Dodge Ram trucks had a Bill of Material Number (BOM) stamped on a Build Tag (red arrow) attached to the differential by two of the differential cover bolts (yellow arrows) when the vehicle was shipped from the factory. The BOM number is a 6 digit number beginning with a 6 plus a dash number (ex: 610604-2). They can be used to determine not only the axle model, but also what components the axle was originally built with. We often ask for this number to insure we provide you with the exact parts you need for your truck.

Each different BOM number signifies an engineering part change which may be minor or major and may involve one or more parts. Unfortunately, these tags are often missing on trucks that had prior differential service dash number indicates the axle ratio. Available Axle Ratios were 3.23, 3.54, 3.92, and 4.09.

Ball Joints

top_page
product note

The 1985-1993 Dodge Dana 44 Beam Type open knuckle front axle uses replaceable Ball Joints pressed into the steering knuckle. Both Ball Joints are weight bearing. A threaded adjuster that screws into the upper hole of the axle yoke is used to provide preload on the Ball Joints. Dana has modified the seal configuration on the current production parts, but the high quality and basic Ball Joint design has remained unchanged since the early 1970's. Over the years we have found the average Ball Joint life of our non-greaseable, factory Dana Ball Joints to be 7 to 10 years for vehicles used as daily drivers and/or work vehicles.

Differential and Pinion Bearings (Individual)

product note

All 1985 to 1993 Dodge Ramcharger, Dodge W-150 1/2 ton truck, Dodge W-250 3/4 ton truck, and Plymouth Trailduster with open knuckle Dana 44 Central Axle Disconnect (CAD) Front Axles use the same differential and pinion bearings.
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!

Differential Bearing and Seal Kits

top_page
product note

Almost all 1985 to 1993 Dodge Ramcharger/Plymouth Trailduster, W-150 1/2 ton truck, W-250 3/4 ton trucks with open knuckle Dana 44 Front Axles used NP208D or NP241D part time transfer cases and had vacuum controlled Central Axle Disconnect (CAD). With a part time transfer case and CAD, the axle shafts and spider gears rotate but the pinion and differential case do not so extreme diff/pinion bearing wear is rather rare. However, the flip side is water condensation in the diff housing has a tendency to cause rust and pitting of the bearings If your vintage Dodge has been parked outside and subject to temperature changes, there is a good chance that significant water damage may have occurred on your differential and pinion bearings. When you replace the bearings, do not forget to replace the inner axle shaft oil seals.

Gaskets and Gasket Makers

top_page
product note

In the mid 1970's Dana made a differential cover design change to heavy gauge covers with flat mating flanges. Unlike the previous, thin gauge covers with embossed flanges which were made for use with a cut gasket, the new design, thick gauge covers are designed for sealing with RTV. If you desire, you can still use a gasket with the new type cover by combining the gasket with thin films of RTV. We stock both Ultra Gray RTV Sealant and genuine Dana Gaskets.

Spindles and Spindle Nuts

top_page
product note

The dead spindle design of the 1985-1993 Dodge Dana 44 CAD front axle uses a needle bearing to support the right outer axle shaft and on 1988-1993 left outer axle shafts. On 1985-1987 trucks, no spindle bearing is used on the LEFT side as the left inner axle shaft is supported next to the yoke by QU50155 Bearing although a Seal Retainer (which is no longer available) is installed in the spindle in place of the bearing. The Spindle itself is the same.

QU40313D Spindle Kit is a genuine Dana part for 1985-1993 Dodge Ramcharger, W150, W250, and Plymouth Trailduster. Also directly replaces the RIGHT spindle on 1985-1993 trucks, however, to use this Spindle on the left side of your 1985-1987 4x4, you need to remove the spindle bearing and replace it with the seal retainer from your old spindle.

Spindle Bearings and Seals

top_page
product note

The dead spindle design of the 1985-1993 Dodge Dana 44 CAD front axle uses a needle bearing to support the right outer axle shaft and on 1988-1993 left outer axle shafts. On 1985-1987 trucks, no spindle bearing is used on the LEFT side as the left inner axle shaft is supported next to the yoke by QU50155 Bearing. To protect the spindle bearing and control axial thrust, a 4 piece set consisting of an Axle Shaft Slinger, Large V-Seal, Small V-Seal, and Thrust Washer was used. We have both Kits and individual exact replacement Dana-Spicer Spindle small parts for your hard-working 1985-1993 Dodge 4x4.

Wheel Bearings and Seals (Individual)

top_page
product note

The wheel bearings used on all 1985-1993 Dodge Dana 44 front axles with vacuum controlled Central Axle Disconnect (CAD) are the same. Some aftermarket sources list two different wheel seals for 1985, however I have only seen (and Dana only lists) QU90001 flanged style which fits a 3.303" hub bore. If your early production truck has an seal with no flange and your hub bore is 3.25" you need to order QU50091 Wheel Seal.

Wheel Bearing and Seal Kits

product note

It is always good preventative maintenance to replace the all wheel bearings and seals when restoring or maintaining your vintage 4x4. The parts availability for decades old 4x4s declines on a daily basis. Wrecking a wheel hub and/or spindle when the old bearing you reused fails can either cost you a mint or put your broken-down truck on blocks forever. We stock high quality Timken® Wheel Bearings and North American made Wheel Seals to keep your big Dodge rolling.
