    When taking apart my Dana 60, I remember taking off two dust shiels, one was a fairly flat plate with a cutout for the caliper, and the other was round "dish" shaped piece with the center cut out. All mine were pretty much non-existent swiss cheeze due to rust. I had bought a set off a fellow member here that were in great shape.

    I remember on 10 bolt fronts, those two pieces are made into one (or rusted as one piece). I thought the dish shaped piece went on just after the flat shield, but in the picture posted the flat piece (#63 in the picture) goes on much later than the dish piece (#56 in the picture). I thought 63 went on first then 56 with the dish pointed outward (opposite of the picture), but the picture has me puzzled. If I put it on like the picture states, it looks like the dish will rub on the knuckle.

    Please let me know what you think.

    TIA

    I will do that, but even still, it looks as if the picture is giving incorrect information......is this true?
