    They arent hard. It just makes it easier with some knowledge and all the correct tools, that makes such a big differrence. As long as the patterns good and you made sure the bearings were seated and crushed the crush sleeve it should be good!

    DANA 44 w/ 4.10 gears. Rough but rebuildable condition: $15.00 + ship.
    Front Dana 44 hub to hub, 8 lug complete on stout pallet: 415#
    It's what I paid for it, but I'd rather wait on a D60.

    Depends what axle. 10b are the same, just takes longer to get the axles out. Dans have shims to set the preload not a crush sleeve.
