Questions: I recently bought several parts to repair my front axle, but I have doubts about the type of lubricant that I should use in the bearings and the steering knuckle support. if you could help me I would appreciate it

Pack your bearings with heavy duty axle grease. in the differential use 80/90 weight NON-synthetic straight GL-4. In your knuckles we use John Deer corn head grease.

Questions: This steering knuckle support looks identical to the ones on the Dana 27 in my 1969 CJ5. Is there a difference between the ones used in the 1966 CJ5 and the one used in the 1969 CJ5? Thanks for the help.

Questions: I think I need the two new steering knuckle for my CJ3A.The threads are usefull, in both.my question is: is possible to change the six front bolts for STUDS ? because the use and abuse in hard terrain makes me disassembly several times to check, repair and grease. Yesterday I put the new Spicer axles and is impossible to arrive at torque. Thank you very much.

I suppose you could swap for studs as long as they are hardened.

Questions: Do these knuckles have the extra .058 or so thickness on the bottom? I see someone ask but I couldn’t see your answer to that. My question would be for both sides.

Not sure i understand the question exactly. You do need to use king pin bearing shims to set your preload. Email firstname.lastname@example.org happy to help out. Thanks!

Questions: Hi, I need to get the seal gasket for the bottom of the steering knuckle (should be a rectangular piece to accommodate center opening and 4 bolts). Do you have it? Thanks, Tim
Question By: Anonymous on Jan 18 2015 12:00 AM
A6882 is the shim set. They never really originally used a paper gasket down there. I would just use some silicone.

Your knuckle may be worn. It wouldnt hurt to replace. I would double check all your bearings and spindle nuts too.

You typically need to shim depending on the condition of your bearings and how much play you have.
