    Hey, i'm in the process of re-assembling my dana 60. when i bought it, it was in pieces, and now that i'm re-assembling it, i think i'm missing a part. Here is a pic of the part(the part that is bolted to the caliper bracket) and i was wondering if you guys could tell me what the name of the part is ( it looks like a dust shield of some sort) and if any one knows where i could pic some up at? I appreciate all the help. THanks.

    While that shield is not absolutely necessary...I would not be so quick to throw it away. If you have them, you probably should run them. They are probably there for several reasons:

    1. keep excess grease contained that comes out of the seal, and off the rotor/wheel,etc
    2. create a shield for dust/dirt/mud. It acts like a labrynth seal to help deflect mud away from the rubber seal.

    Personally, I run them for these reasons (just put my D60 in actually, and could have removed them while I was in there). I had the spindles off while packing the needle roller.
