Need help with front end......doing U-joints, ball joints, etc.

Long story short, I'm rebuilding the front end. I already have the ball joints and U-joints. A friend said to replace the seal behind the rotor......anyone got a p/n for that? Any other tips on what to replace? The truck is a 95 f250 with the stock D50 with 3:55's.

I know, I know just get a D60 but I don't have the time or $$. Maybe one day if I find a wrecked f350 for cheap.

Anyone service manual Warn locking hubs before?? Do you pack them with grease and add some to the splines? I tried doing a search and couldn't find anything other than installing new ones.

Maybe someone will school me on the Warn hubs?

Well, got the whole axle out. What a PITA. Good thing I did though, everything was shot. Hope everyone likes pics!

Don't pack your hubs with grease, they really aren't supposed to have grease in them, although some will work it's way in anyway. You can grease the spines just to make it easier to put back in.

OK, thanks. I'll just do the splines then.

More pics!

Not sure. So far I only have the u-joints, ball joints, 2 seals and 1 ball joint that I bought over 1 year ago. Right now, I'm making a list and cleaning/removing the parts.

if the outer joints are that bad the inners will be too i bet.

lockouts get very little grease, the 'hub' can refer to the actual wheel bearing hub so that gets a good amount of grease

I bet the costs are pretty close to a 60 and ttb50

After a long fustrating fight with my ttb I am now 1300 in the hole, best thing to do right off the bat is do the dana 60 swap, I got rapped just trying to keep my truck on the road, should have pulled that front off the day I bought it, unless you want to keep the ride compfort of the ttb. I did ball joints, wheel bearings, hubs, rotors, pivot bushings, u joints, new axles, seals, new diff bearings, rebuilt the whole thing and in the end im disappointed I didnt just buy a 60

Quick question, I've got almost everything (I hope!) to finish this job but can't figure out the Rolling Diaphragm Seal. Anyone know off hand what the p/n is? The seal I took off has #'s but they don't match anything.

Will this work? It looks just like it but the years don't match. TIMKEN 710413 Axle Output Shaft Seal Front Front Inner | eBay
