    If you jack up the wheels on Dana 60 and you can wobble it back and forth is that a bad wheel bearing? Are the breaks on a Dana 60 a lot better than a 3/4 ton dana 44.

    could be worn wheel bearings, worn king pins, is the knuckle stationary when you move the wheel back and forth

    The spring king pin spring is either toast or the nylon bushing is shot (as mentioned above) either way the upper king pin kit comes with both parts ($20 each side for the uppers). Uppers are a 30 minute unstall if the original pins are usable.

    Yeah, check that stuff, we've got the kingpin spring and bushing kit alone, wheel bearing kits, full kingpin rebuilds, etc. It's not too expensive to fix any of it, you'll probably get away pretty easy.
    YES, 1 ton brakes are way bigger than 3/4T.
