    I took apart my "new" Dana 60 front (single rear wheels)after installing it, and it's a mess. I need 2 new hubs (Not locking hubs, but the hub that the rotor fastens to and the berings and locking hubs fit into). Where can I find these? I know there are a hot item used, so I might have to fork over the money and get them new. Anyone besides a GM dealer have these? Anyone know of any around? I have to get this thing up and going.

    Thanks,

    Eric M.

    The hub assemblies, not the lockouts.

    I need the actual hub that the rotor fits to.

    Looks like at one time a bering and race spun in one of the hubs. The race does not fit very tight. It works, but not tight enough for my liking. The other one must've had the same problem but it looks like the race spun up to where the seal installs. The race fits OK, but the seal won't fit properly.

    How do you fix them? Probably wouldn't work for me, I've gotta get the truck up and running, but I'm curious and could use these as a spare. What would it cost?

    Thanks,

    Ahhhh....you need the bearing hub. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    If you go to gmpartsdirect.com and type in part number #15635530 in the box, they will show you the price for a brand spanking new D60 bearing hub. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    Good God, tell me that's the price for the gold plated version.

    What makes GM think they can charge that kind of money for a chunk of metal.

    I read recently (either here or PBB) that some shop (not Dynatrac) had bought the molds from Dana and were now producing the GM bearing hubs. I think they were selling them on Ebay for $150 each (no rotors).

    Sorry, I don't remember who it was but I do some searching...

    I've been watching e-Bay. I haven't seen anything like that. If you see or hear anything more, let me know. I'd jump on new ones for that price.

    Thanks,

    Actually, that price is cheaper than anybody else I know of for brand spanking new bearing hubs.

    If you went to your local dealer and had them order them, their price would be closer to the list price on the GM Parts Direct site. /forums/images/graemlins/shocked.gif

    So, that price on the site is pretty fair and cheap considering they are brand new and come with the races already installed. /forums/images/graemlins/wink.gif

    Damn, looks like they raised the price $70 a pair. Unless they will still do the old price.
