Parts for 1984.5-1993 Dana-Spicer Model 70 Rear Axles in Dodge Trucks
We stock a wide selection of parts and tools for Dodge Dana 70 Rear Axles in 1984.5 to 1993 Dodge 3/4 ton and 1 ton trucks. The Dana 70 Rear Axles used by Dodge for 1984.5 to 1993 D250, W250, D350, and W350 trucks are "U" series axles that have a pinion offset of 0.625". The Dana 70U was used from 1984.5 to 1990. The Dana 70-2U can be found on some 1987-1990 trucks and on all 1991-1993 models. Except for Ring and Pinion Sets, most of the common service parts are identical for Dodge Dana 70U and Dana 70-2U axles. Dodge used both single rear wheel and dual rear wheel Dana 70 axles for 1 ton 350 series trucks. The single and dual rear wheel axles have different widths, spindles, hubs, and wheel bearings. All 1989-1993 Diesel 3/4 ton trucks will have a Dana 70 single rear wheel rear axle. Most gas engine D/W 250 series trucks use a Dana 60 instead of a Dana 70 unless equipped with a snow plow package or other heavy-duty option.
Axle Identification

Dana Axle ID Tag
Click to enlarge

1984.5-1993 Dana Spicer Model 70 Rear Axles in Dodge Ram 250 and 350 series trucks have a Bill of Material Number (BOM) stamped on a Build Tag (red arrow) attached to the differential by two of the differential cover bolts (yellow arrows). The BOM number is a 6 digit number beginning with a 6 plus a dash number (ex: 605523-3). They can be used to determine not only the axle model, but also what components the axle was originally built with. We often ask for this number to insure we provide you with the exact parts you need for your truck.

All 1984.5 to 1993 Dodge Model 70 rear axles will have a BOM that starts with "605". If you have a 1984 axle with a BOM that begins with "603", refer to our 1972-1984.5 Dodge Model70 Rear Axle Parts Web Page.

Each different BOM number signifies an engineering part change which may be minor or major and may involve one or more parts. The dash number indicates the axle ratio and differential type (open or locking). Unfortunately, these tags are often missing on trucks that had prior differential service.

Dana 70 axle Cover

Not all Dana axles have the model number cast on the housing. It can be very difficult to tell a Dana 60 from a Dana 70, as they have nearly identical covers with exactly the same bolt pattern. One way to tell if you have a Dana 60 or Dana 70 is to measure the cover flange height (yellow arrow). The Dana 60 flange height is approximately 1" high. The Dana 70 flange height is about 1¼" high.

Model 70 Bill of Material Numbers
All 1989-1993 Ram 2500 trucks with the Cummins Diesel used a Dana 70 as did V8 gas 3500 models with any transmission.

Axle Shafts and Axle Shaft Hardware
Product Note icon Dodge used two different axle shaft splines in 1984 to 1993 D350 4x2 and W350 4x4 trucks with Dana 70 rear axles. Left and right axle shafts on a given axle are the same. Single Rear Wheel (SRW) models all have the same length axle shafts. Dual Rear Wheel (DRW) axles came in both narrow track and wide track configurations so you must positively identify your DRW axle before ordering a replacement shaft. Link to Our Dodge Web Page Index

Brake Parts
Product Note icon Almost all the 1984.5-1993 Dodge Dana 70 Rear Axles are equipped with Bendix 12" rear drum brakes. The brake shoe width varied from 2.5" to 3.0" depending upon the exact application. At this time, we mainly stock the important, but hard to find and out of production parking brake mounting hardware. Most 1987-1993 Dodge Ram 250 and Ram 350 trucks are equipped with anti-lock brakes. The rear axle ABS system used on this era of Dodge trucks is rather crude by today's standards. The signal is generated by a toothed steel tone ring (QU40290) pressed on the differential case next to the ring gear. A magnetic pickup is located in the top of the axle housing above the tone ring. Since the unit is sensing differential speed and not the speed of either rear wheel, it can not be used to selectively apply the individual rear brakes. Link to Our Dodge Web Page Index
QU40290 Dana 70 ABS Tone Ring gets installed on the differential case next to the ring gear on rear Anti Lock Brake equipped 1987-1993 Dodge Dana 70 Rear Axles.

Differential and Pinion Bearing Kits Featuring Timken Bearings
Product Note icon With durable, torque rich Diesel and high powered gas fuel injected engines, vehicle mileage life expectancy is two to three times as great as it was with carbureted engines so an axle rebearing job is now a preventive maintenance service that should usually be performed on trucks with 125,000 (Cummins Diesel) to 175,000 (gas V8) miles on the odometer to prevent catastrophic bearing related failures. Our Differential Bearing and Seal Kits include Timken® Differential and Pinion Bearings plus a pinion seal and small parts needed to perform the typical Dana 70 full float Dodge rear axle rebearing service.

Tech Note icon Dan the Gear Man® Tech Note: Gear set breakage caused by worn and loose Differential Bearings is one of the biggest killers of rear axles. When the differential bearings wear, the backlash between the ring gear and pinion gear will change. Most often, it increases as the ring gear side differential bearing usually takes the brunt of the wear. As the backlash increases beyond approximately 0.010", the chances of breaking a gear tooth increase dramatically. Additionally, a rough and worn differential bearing is very likely to break free and spin on the differential case which will usually mean the case must be replaced. With the Model 70, one often finds the differential bearing cups have worn sideways into the axle housing Sometimes, the wear is minor and can be compensated for by re-shimming the differential, but in most cases, the axle bore faces will need to be re-cut with an Axle Bore Facing Tool such as the QT1000 or the axle housing will need to be replaced. To minimize the chances of wrecking expensive differential parts, I recommend completely re-bearing Dana 60 and 70 axles every 125,000 miles and Dana 80's at or before 150,000 miles.

Gaskets
In the mid 1970's Dana made a differential cover design change to heavy gauge covers with flat mating flanges. Unlike the previous, thin gauge covers with embossed flanges which were made for use with a cut gasket, the new design, thick gauge covers are designed for sealing with RTV. If you desire, you can still use a gasket with the new type cover by combining the gasket with thin films of RTV. We stock both Ultra Gray RTV Sealant and genuine Dana Gaskets. Link to Our Dodge Web Page Index
QU40367 Rear Differential Cover Gasket for Model 70 Axles. These genuine Dana-Spicer gaskets will also work on Dana 60 axles. Dan the Gear Man Tech Note: RTV sealant instead of Gaskets were used during the factory assembly of your axle.
QU40078 Rear Axle shaft Flange Gasket To prevent oil leaks, your Axle Shaft Flange Gaskets should be replaced anytime the axle is removed. These embossed steel gaskets are genuine Dana-Spicer parts.
S82194 Ultra Gray RTV Sealant combines high adhesion and resistance to both conventional and synthetic gear lubes. The perfect choice to seal the differential cover on your Dodge Dana 70.

Ring and Pinion Kits
Product Note icon When it comes to fit, finish, durability, and ease of set-up, no aftermarket gear set equals the matched, original equipment Dana-Spicer Ring and Pinion Sets. I have been building axles for well over 30 years, and to date, I have never had a problem setting up a genuine Dana-Spicer gear set, or have we had to set up a gear set warranty. That is a track record that the aftermarket gear suppliers can only dream about. The bottom line is when you purchase a genuine Dana-Spicer gear set, you get quality equal to original equipment because it IS original equipment. When you select an aftermarket import gear set you will not get a gear set that installs and performs equal to original equipment. Link to Our Dodge Web Page Index

QU40022 Stock Pinion Nut for Model 70 Rear Axles for 1984-1993 Dodge D250, W250, D350, and W350 trucks with Dana 70 Rear Axles.

QU10918 Combination Pinion Nut/Washer is an updated original equipment replacement part for Dana Model 70 rear axles. The original setup for Dodge Ram Model 70 rear axle used the QU40022 Pinion Nut and QU40023 Pinion Washer, however, with the debut of the Cummins Diesel in 1989, this combination was found to be inadequate as the pinion washer would flex and bend under load. The first solution was to replace the pinion washer with a now discontinued extra-thick Pinion Washer which in turn was replaced by this new design flange nut which replaces both the nut and washer.
QU40099 Model 60 and 70 Outer Pinion Slinger fits between the outer pinion bearing and pinion yoke on 1984-1993 Dodge D250, W250, D350, and W350 trucks with Dana 70 Rear Axles.

Spindle Nuts and Spindle Nut Hardware
Product Note icon Spindle Nuts have two functions and they are to provide for correct wheel bearing adjustment and to keep your wheel hubs in place. We stock both the original equipment single nut and our Torque King® double spindle nut upgrade sets for your big Dodge Dana 70 rear axle. Stock Spindle Nuts and Spindle Lock Wedges are "Single Use" parts that are designed to be installed once and only once. For safety reasons, you must discard both the nut and wedge if they are removed from the spindle for any reason. Both parts lose a percentage of their resistance to coming off when they are removed. You may hear of cases where this type of factory nut has come off while the truck was being driven. Invariably, these failures involve nuts and wedges that have been reused or improperly installed.

Dan the Gear Man® Tech Note: QU40077 Spindle Nuts and QU40089 Spindle Lock Wedges are "Single Use", genuine Ford and Dana Spicer original equipment components. These parts are designed to be installed once and only once. For safety reasons, you must discard both the nut and wedge if they are removed from the spindle for any reason. Both parts lose a percentage of their resistance to coming off when they are removed. You may hear of cases where this type of factory nut has come off while the truck was being driven. Invariably, these failures involve nuts and wedges that have been reused. I am not aware of a single instance of a properly installed new nut and wedge coming off like that. In my opinion, the original equipment nut design is as safe to use as our double nut sets sold above as long as you follow the rules.
