    I'm working on rebuilding my dana 44, and the dust covers or whatever they are called are rusted out. The part I'm talking about is a metal shield that bolts onto the caliper bracket with 6 bolts I think. I believe it's supposed to keep excess dirt out. My question is where do I find these metal shields? Is this something that O'Reilly would have?

    Don't a lot of people just remove them anyway? Heard people complain about them trapping dirt and rocks...

    yeah, the more I thought about it, I decided they are just gonna trap more dirt and rust away again. Thanks for the help though.
