QU50576 Dana 44 Front Axle Differential Bearing and Seal Kit for many mid 1960's to mid 1990s Dana 44 front drive axles in Chevy, Dodge, Ford, GMC, IHC, or Jeep 4x4s features first-class Timken® Differential and Pinion Bearings, aftermarket Pinion Seal, aftermarket Flanged Pinion Nut, Gear Marking Compound, Threadlocker, and RTV Sealant.
The Pinion Seal included with this Kit is a good quality aftermarket part. For a Premium Original Equipment Quality Pinion Seal for your truck, order optional QU40215 Seal for all axles except 1980-1996 Ford IFS Dana 44. If you have a 1980-1996 Ford Dana 44IFS front axle, the optional Original equipment seal is QU40578.
Inspect your pinion flange yoke for wear or damage in the area where the seal rides. Replace any yoke that has significant grooving or other conditions that could wreck or prematurely wear your new seal.
The Dana 44 axles that use this Kit would be in most 1967-1993 model year 4x4s with Dana 44 solid beam type front axles using shims for setting pinion bearing preload. Earlier vehicles will have different differential bearings. Later models use a crush sleeve instead of shims for pinion bearing preload, have a different pinion seal, and usually different bearings.
