    I am replacing my front ball joints and would like to know what else I need to replace while I am in there. This is my first time doing this on a four wheel drive. The axle is a Dana 44. I allready have the Moog ball joints and need to know what bearings, seals,ect.. to replace. Should I replace the axle u-joints at the same time even if they are in good shape? Any help would be appreciated.

    I'm doing the same job friday. Ball joints, grease seals, axle joints and hopefully all else will be good.

    Get the wheel hub seals and the seal kit #SBK-1. This kit is the little spindle bearing on the inside back, and the two rubber seals for the stub axle shaft, and also the plastic washer for the stub shaft.
