tech note

The Upper Bushings used in this Kit are in critically short supply and very expensive. For a much less expensive alternative, you can use the QK4618 Large Knuckle Bearing Kit.

tech note

Shims are used between the King Pin Caps and Steering Knuckles to set your Knuckle Bearing/Bushing turning preload. More shims decreases preload, less shims increases preload. King Pin Caps are shimmed to put the specified turning preload on the bearings. The amount of turning preload on Model 44 axles varies by vehicle and year but the value is measured by a beam or dial type torque wrench (refer to the vehicle manufacturer Service Manual for your specific model specification). Too loose can cause poor steering or "Death Wobble", too tight will lead to rapid bearing failure, broken parts, and possible steering loss.

tech note

If you have a Dana 25, Dana 27, Dana 30, or Dana 44 front axle with 8 bolt ball seals, see QK4617
