    Hello folks! I recently purchased a Dana 60 front axle with a build date of 1994.

    I've looked high and low for an exploded view of that axle so I can get a sense of what seals I need in there (in particular, the seals on the BACKSIDE of the spindle...... I've got a new bearing for inside there, and I've got a new seal for the back of the rotor. But there appears to be a seal that sits on the backside of the spindle once the new needle bearing is installed there. Also, there appears to be another seal that sits on the shoulder of the outer front axle (that seems to seal against the backside of the spindle as well.

    Friends, does any of you know of an exploded view of the front dana 60 axle, and perhaps a list of replacement / maintenance items on that axle?

    Many thanks! IMG_3498.JPEG IMG_3498.JPEG IMG_3495.JPEG

    I usually buy the kit with seals and bearing, this is the updated part that combines the seal and wear washer together and replaces the dust slinger and single seal on the stub axle.

    This is the updated seal and wear washer

    And the updated stub axle seal (if you have a big metal disc on your stub axle you need to remove it to use the newer seal)

    And just for reference, this is the old seal setup that has been updated
