Thank you!!! Got the axles out. Not a lot of room to work with a pry bar......started first with a porta power spreader, between knuckle and u-joint—side to side. Moved it out far enough to get a prybar between axle tube and old seal (see picture) and then popped them out.

The needle bearing polished surfaces on axles look good as well as those that go into the differential. The u-joints have no play in them and have grease zirks so I’m going to leave them alone.
Anyone know if greasable u-joints were installed by Ford or has someone likely already replaced them?
Also I’m going to make a seal installer instead of buying one— when using seal installer to seat the axle and seal all the way into the knuckle is there a positive stop you can feel where you know it’s in far enough for the groove and split ring Thanks!

Big Horn,
I think Ford u-joints lacked zerks for that era.

Definitely something to consider—no more than I will use my 4WD new sealed u-joints would probably last me the rest of my (trucks) life. Besides, now I know how to take the front hubs apart- Lol
Thanks Steve83

Also-After reading a little more, I opted to buy the seating tool—as the directions say the tool is made to seat axle and hub seal to the correct depth.

Even if you plan to use & abuse them non-stop, sealed U-joints will last longer with less maintenance than greasables. And they're physically stronger.

I have a question about my Dana 60 oil seals. I didn’t have any oil in the axle tubes until I pulled the axle out of the carrier (low side on stands)
How long (Miles) do these seals normally last before needing replacement?

I realize that probably depends on 4WD usage.

At least 200K miles( YMMV ). I replaced my D50 axle that had problems with a new 04 D60 takeout. I've had the axle shafts out of that one at least once, and the axle seals (just outboard of the differential) are still fine. I leave my hubs locked all winter, as well.

You have to pull the differential to change them, so if they aren't leaking ...... well you know the saying - if it ain't broke, don't fix it.

First truck -- 1929 Model A Ford pickup, restored from ground up. Wish I still had it!

Since I’m waiting on parts I’ve been searching / reading all the old posts about front hubs on TDS. Came across the Dynatrac Free Spin modification. A lot of old posts, but nothing recent. Went on-line to manufacturers web site, Seems like a good mod and don’t see any negative comments on TDS other than initial cost. I’ll see how these $300. hubs hold up this time, but Geeeeeeez - $1900.00 is a lot of money..........But I guess since I would be doing the labor it might be worth it in the long run

Heading up town to buy a six pack and lottery ticket! Wire brushed, soaked in liquid wrench, and got the u-joints apart with a hammer and spacer (old lug nut key) 😗
