Front hub seal tool OTC 6697

How come I can't use my OTC front hub seal tool (6695?) '99-'04 on my 2005 front end? There's a 2005-2007 tool OTC 6697.

What's the difference?

The older tool will not fit over the stub axle because the 05 is bigger I believe.

You'd think if the seal was bigger, then you could use the older tool if you were careful?
I know its only like $100 for the tool but that $100 coud pay for more parts...

everything is bigger on the 05+. the hub diameter, seal diameter and axle are all larger. you put the 2 seal installers side by side and you'll see a big difference

that's why 05+ has to have 17" or larger wheels, 16", like the previous years, would never fit

Hmmm......Is there a reason why Ford upgraded all that? I don't often hear of a Dana 60 front end breaking down.

I can't say for sure but the change also included a coil spring front end. I know the GVWR on 05+ trucks is more for a comparable truck from a previous year

So the correct tool for the 05-07 is the OTC 6697? Right?

Is there anyway to make a homemade tool like people did with the 2004 and earlier trucks?

Thinking again, isn't the reason for bigger wheels the bigger brakes? Which would then be the reason for the extra 3.5K GCWR. It sure ain't the the suspension components. Even though the factory GVWR is 9.9K on my rig the combined AWRs equal out to just under 12K.
