Early 99 F350 hub bearing vs. late 99
I have a 1999 F-350 DRW built 6/99(from the tag in the driver door jam). I was told buy the dealer that it needed a bearing hub. I got one based on the build dates(pre 3-22-99 or later). I removed the hub and flipped it over and the rear of this is a different size (I attached a picture). The axle has a huge pitman arm and a 1" track bar with huge bolts(maybe 32mm), which I understand to be late 99 indentifiers. It also has the square u-bolts. The rear of the bearing appear to be a early 99 bearing but all the indicators point to the late 99 axle, can this be the case? If so can I use the late bearing if it originally had the early bearing? I did put the bearing in the knuckle and it fit fine butted right up against the knuckle and did not seem to have any drag when I spun it be hand. Has anyone else had this iisue or know if it will work?
