    On my old D44 the inner spindle nut goes right against the inner race of the outer wheel bearing, no thrust washer. After the hub with the outer bearing is installed, it goes, inner spindle nut (the one with the tit on it), spindle nut lock ring, then outer spindle nut.

    so an old dana 44 has no washer and another one does...o ya...mine is the newer dana 44 (the one that looks like a 10 bolt caseing) sooo im guessing it does need a washer between the bearing and spindle nut?:confused:
