Parts for Dana-Spicer Closed Knuckle Model 44 Solid Beam Front Axles in 1957-1973 Jeep 4x4 Trucks

Jeep first used the Dana 44 Closed Knuckle Beam Type Front Axle in the 1957 cab over engine Forward Control (FC) series of 4x4 trucks. The Dana 44 will be found in FC150 trucks with the 57" wide track option which was basically a 1/2 ton short bed truck. Also using the Dana 44 axle was the long wheel base FC-170 3/4 ton to 1 ton truck which was available with either single or dual rear wheels. Jeep built FC series trucks through the 1965 model year. The 1963-1973 Jeep Gladiator line of trucks would also use the Solid Beam Dana 44 closed knuckle axle as the stock axle. A Dana 44IFS axle was available as on option for 1963 to 1965 model years. The Gladiator line was built in 1/2 ton and 3/4 ton single rear wheel versions, plus a dual rear wheel 1 ton truck.

Axle Shaft Seals and Seal Kits

top_page
product note
All 1662-1973 Jeep J-Series models 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. Several different Seals were used depending upon year and vehicle model. Axle disassembly including differential removal is required to replace the Seals

One of these Seals are installed in each axle tube, right next to the differential to keep gear lube from leaking out the ends of the axle housing. QU40055 Unitized Seal replaces the original two piece QU42015 seal and separate sheet metal guide.

Axle Universal Joints

top_page
product note
The Jeep Closed Knuckle Dana 44 axle uses solid cross, inside lock-up universal joints without seals that are designed to be bathed in a semi-liquid lubricant from inside the closed knuckle balls. By today's standards, these u-joints are way undersized, but given the lighter vehicle weights and modestly powered engines of the late 1950's to the early 1970's, the joint size was probably adequate

Closed Knuckle Parts

top_page
product note
We stock the regular service closed knuckle parts for your 1957-1973 Jeep 4x4 truck with a closed knuckle Dana 44 front axle which will have 8 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 Jeep Dana 44 differential Side Bearing change which occurred during the 1967 to 1968 model years, The Jeep Parts Books show the changeover by by referencing it to Jeep axle assembly part numbers instead of by year. The very early production trucks with 258-6 and 358-V8 engines will have the earlier, small ID bearing. From what I can remember from working on them, almost all the mid-1967 and newer trucks had the new bearing with the exception of some heavy GVW models that did not change until late 1967 or early 1968. If you have a 1967 or 1968 model year Gladiator truck, you should verify what diff side bearing you have before ordering!
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!

Gaskets and Gasket Makers

top_page
product note
Depending upon the year, a cut gasket or RTV sealant was used by Dana-Spicer to seal the differential cover. Early, thin gauge covers with embossed flanges are made for use with a cut gasket. Later thick gauge covers with flat flanges are designed for sealing with RTV or if you desire, you can use a combination of a cut gasket with thin films of RTV. We stock both genuine Dana Gaskets and Ultra Gray RTV Sealant which has high adhesion and excellent resistance to synthetic lubricants

product note

The outer nut functions as a lock nut, it is held in place by a bend-over lock washer located between the two nuts. Vehicles with Warn Lock-O-Matic Hubs require special lockwashers and round outer nuts. 1969-1973 J4000 and J4800 trucks use bigger spindles and spindle nut parts
