    Can anyone tell me what the pinion nut's should be torqued to on a Dana 60 front and a 14 bolt ff rear? I spent most of the day trying to find some thin wall sockets to remove the old nut's & yokes and now I need to know what the nuts should be torqued to.

    And I thought I would have the truck done before the UCP charity ride. /forums/images/graemlins/rolleyes.gif I will be lucky to have it together before memorial day weekend. /forums/images/graemlins/angryfire.gif

    D60 pinion nut torque is 240 to 300 ft lbs.

    As I understand you are supposed to mark the shaft then put the new nut on (with Locktite) back where the old nut was that way not to affect pinion preload. I don't believe you should put that much torque on it unless you are installing a new crush sleeve. Hope this helps.

    BTW, these axles have never been used; got them rebuilt a few months ago and I am now replacing the yokes.
