    I'm going to install my Aussie locker this weekend and one of the things they instruct you to check is the condition of the side gear thrust washers. Since I need to get this complete by the close of the weekend, I would like to just buy a new set and be done with it.

    Anyone have a part number for them? Or someplace local that would carry them. I tried the dealership and they had them on the drawing, but no list for them.

    Any help would be appreciated.

    Are you talkin about the thrust washer that is next to the spindle bearing?
    If so you can get it by buying a Spindle repair kit. Spicer # 706527X
    Kit includes spindle bearing, thrust washer (grey plastic washer) & seal.

    If this is not what your after I have no clue....:D

    We are talking about the steel shim between the side gears and the inner case in the diff . Years of open diff use usually wears em thin .

    See if there is a Dana/Spicer distributor near you. They should have it

    When I did ball joints I tried to find a Dana/Spicer dist here before with no luck.

    It just occured to me that I have 3 D44s I could search for parts. The '74 I'm working on, plus a '75 and a '76. Wonder what the odds are that I could find 2 good thrust washers between the 3 axles.:thinking:

    Find a local shop that works on the drivelines of medium and heavy duty trucks. They will almost always be able to order Spicer parts. Look in the yellow pages under "truck parts".

    Truthfully , I did the install on supersize75's front d44 , during the time it was k5redneck's d44 . I reused the old thrustwashers . No problems on that one .

    I don't believe its gonna be much of a problem on a front .

    Unless you were to drive highway speeds with the hubs locked on pavement and turn a corner ;)

    Thanks for all the assistance guys.

    I'll check the Yellowpages again.

    I thought about partsmike and forgot to check.

    I also found another vendor, completeoffroad.com They have the thrust washers in question. Plus alot of other cool Spicer stuff too, alot of stuff I would classify as "hard to find" I did some searching about the site, and it looks to be a good vendor; mostly known in the Bronco circles it would appear. Also a vendor on Pirate.

    Pauly, you know if I don't have spare thrust washers lined up, I'll need them. If I have, I won't. You know how that goes.:rolleyes:
