Parts and Tools for 1980-1984 Dodge Ram 4x4s with Dana 44 Front Drive Axles

For the 1980 model year, Dodge introduced a new, Dana 44 axle with serviceable wheel bearings, lockout hubs, and disc brakes. The new axle replaced the unreliable live spindle, full time Dana 44 front axle used from late 1974 through 1979. 1980 and 1981 axle were equipped with Dana manual hubs. 1982-1984 trucks had Borg-Warner automatic locking hubs.

Axle Shaft Inner Seals and Seal Kits

top_page
product note

All 1980-1984 Dodge 4x4 models with Dana 44 front axles have Inner Axle Shaft Oil Seals pressed in the inboard end of each axle tube, right next to the differential side bearings. These seals contact the inner axle shafts to prevent gear oil from running out of the differential and down the axle tubes. Old age, blown axle u-joints, and/or grit that works it's way into the axle tubes and cuts the seal are the usual causes of failure. A bad Inner Axle Shaft Seal can be detected by oil coming out the end of the axle tubes next to the axle shaft u-joint. Usually when these Seals start to fail, they will seep oil so the leakage may go undetected for quite some time. Many a ring and pinion set has been burned up from axles that lost all their lube when long term seepage was not noticed.

Axle Universal Joints

top_page
product note

We offer three different Universal Joints for your hard working 1980 to 1984 4x4 Dodge Ramcharger, Plymouth Trailduster or W-150, W250 4x4 Truck with a Dana 44 solid front axle. All are good, reliable products, but different manufacturing techniques and seal types will have a major influence on the ultimate life of the joint. Our most popular choice is our TK40712 cold-forged, non-greaseable, original equipment replacement U-Joint. The wear-resistant cold-forged cross and superior sealing make it the best choice for both low maintenance and long life. QU40754 and QU90007 are hot-forged and are equipped with single lip seals. They are greaseable through a flush fitting threaded into one of the caps. With good maintenance and quality lubricant like our Pyroplex® Plus Grease, these joints will last and last.

Ball Joints

top_page
product note

The 1980-1984 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 & Pinion Individual Bearing Cups & Cones

top_page
product note

All 1980 to 1984 Dodge Ramcharger, Dodge W-150 1/2 ton truck, Dodge W-250 3/4 ton truck, and Plymouth Trailduster with open knuckle Dana 44 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 & Seal Kits Featuring Genuine Dana-Spicer Parts

top_page
product note

1980 to 1984 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 part time transfer cases and had lockout hubs. With a part time transfer case and lockout hubs, the axle shafts and differential parts do not rotate, so extreme diff/pinion bearing wear is rather rare. However, the flip side is water condensation in the diff 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.

Hubs and Hub Parts

product note

Dana manual locking hubs were used on the 1980 and 1981 trucks. Starting in 1982, Dodge installed Borg Warner automatic locking hubs. The auto hubs are nice when they work, but they can be troublesome and most of them were replaced by manual hubs within a few years.

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.
