    I'm changing out my 1310 for a 1350 yoke. It's just rattle the old nut off, and rattle it back on to 230-300 ft/lbs, right?

    Am I missing anything?

    Actually, I thought D60s were shimmed pinions and just torqued down. C14FF has a crush sleeve and has to be carefully monitored for pinion bearing pre-load, but I didn't think that applied to a D60 (or most any common Dana axle).

    Russ has it. The D60 uses shims to set pinion preload. You should be able to just retorque the pinion nut and be fine. I would suggest using a new pinion nut or strong lock-tite just for peace of mind.

    Is a Dana 30 front the same way? Is it a shimed pinion? I need to change the pinion seal in my CJ5 and never did it because I thought it was a crush sleeve like a 14bff and I would F-it up.

    AFAIK all Dana axles use shims for pinion preload.

    Not ture, there is at least one Dana axle that uses a Crush sleeve
    for pinion pre-load.

    Not true. The newer Dana 60s use a crush sleeve. All the GM 44s and 60s should have shims though.
