Well I am in the process of swapping out my old dana 44 for a different dana 44. My original dana 44 from under my truck is complete and the new one is just the housing and gears. So what I want to do is take the knuckles from my old one and install them on the new housing. The problem is what do i do about the adjusting sleeve? I am not installing new ball joints at this time and the Haynes book says not to re-adjust these unless you are installing new ball joints. So how do I know if it is adjusted right when I put the knuckles on from a different axle? Also i says to replace the self locking nut on the lower ball-joint. I have looked and so far can't find just this part. Will a nut and lock-tite do the same thing?
