Parts for Dana-Spicer Model 50 Front Axles in 2000-2005 Ford Excursion 4x4
2000-2005 Ford Excursion 4x4s use Dana 50 monobeam front axles. Externally, the Model 50 Axle looks almost exactly like a Dana 60 used on most of the Super Duty 4x4s of the same vintage, however, all the internal differential components are substantially smaller.

Most of the Dana 50 axle components for the Excursion remained unchanged throughout the six year product cycle (2000-2005), but there are some year and model differences including outer axle shafts, knuckle seals, and wheel hubs. We have a variety of parts, tools, and service information available for your 2000 to 2005 Excursion. Some 1999-2004 F-250 and F-350 models also use the Dana 50 front axle. See our 1999-2004 Super Duty Dana 50 Front Axle web page for parts.

Compared to the preceding body style F-250 and F-350 4x4s, your Excursion 4x4 front axle has a number of design differences that require unique tools and repair procedures especially in regards to the outer axle shaft and wheel hub. Servicing these axles is not hard, IF you know what to expect and have access to accurate service information at least a couple of special tools.

Production of Dana 50 front axles ended when the Excursion was dropped by Ford at the end of the 2005 model year.

  QU20246U-2 Differential Bearing Caps for Ford Dana 50 Axles Differential Bearing Caps are line bored for each axle and considered non-interchangeable. However, if you do not have a differential case spreader, you can use an extra pair of caps to seat the differential, then remove them and replace with the original caps.
Axle Shafts and Axle Shaft Small Parts
The Achilles Heel of the 2000-2005 Ford Excursion front axle is the way the axle shaft is supported. The inboard end of the inner axle shaft is anchored in the differential, but most of the axle shaft weight is borne by a smallish needle bearing in the wheel hub and by the lockout hub. If the needle bearing runs out of grease, the bearing will quickly chew up the outer axle shaft before you start to hear grinding noises. We stock all the original equipment axle shaft small parts plus new axle shafts for your 2000-2005 Ford Excursions Dana 50 Front Axle. Link to Our Ford Page Index
QU40318C Outer Axle Shaft is one of the most common parts needing to be replaced on 2000-2005 Ford Excursion 4x4 Front Axles due to damage caused by water infiltration wrecking QU40143 Axle Shaft Support Bearing.

Axle Shaft Seals and Seal Kits for INNER Axle Shafts

Axle Shaft Seals and Seal Kits for OUTER Axle Shafts
Dan the Gear Man® Tech Note About Knuckle Seal Design Change: The original 1st design knuckle seal design (left) is unshielded and was used from 2000 to early 2002. A 2nd design, redesigned seal with a shield on the inboard side (right) was introduced in 2002 calender year as a 2003 model year part. The early QU40233 seals will work on all 2000-2004 Excursions. The later, QU20035 shielded seal will only fit outer axles with a step diameter of approximately 3.115". Most Trucks built prior to mid 2002 will have outer shafts with a step diameter of 3.210" which will not accept the shielded seal. We recommend you order replacement seals that match the seal type your truck originally came with. Our new, QU40318 series replacement outer axle shafts have the 3.115" step and can be used with either seal style. Link to Our Ford Page Index

Link to our large text QU4846 catalog page.

Dan the Gear Man® Tech Note About Knuckle Seal Installation: Ford knuckle seals are the toughest seals to install we have ever come across.  The seal is of a complicated unitized design that is easily damaged without the correct installer.  In fact, the knuckle seal is virtually impossible to install without damage unless a tool like our one piece, rugged 12 pound QT1515 Knuckle Seal Installer is used to drive or press the seal on.  Not only is the seal an extremely tight fit to the shaft, it also must be installed to a specific depth on both the axle shaft and in the knuckle. A damaged seal will allow water to enter and vacuum to escape.

Differential and Pinion Bearings (Timken® Individual)
Over the years, Dana Spicer has primarily used Timken bearings when building their axles. For long life and dimensional consistency, Timken bearings are unmatched by any other brand of bearing I have used rebuilding axles over the past 30+ years in the business. When you are a shade tree mechanic dealing with a diff and pinion rebearing job without all the fancy gauging tools we have, you always want your new bearings to be the same overall thickness as the original bearings were when the axle was built so your pinion depth, pinion preload and backlash are within the tolerance limits when you are done with the job. Timken bearings will almost always deliver that type of accuracy, plus the steel quality and surface finish is the world's best. Link to Our Ford Page Index

Differential Parts
The Dana 50 axle is unusual in that no other vehicle manufacturer besides Ford ever used it for any application. This means Ford has a lock on the distribution and pricing of most new Dana 50 specific internal parts. Due to the advancing age of Dana 50 equipped vehicles, many Dana 50 differential parts are no longer available from Ford. However, we do have some new small parts and good used major parts for the Ford Dana 50 axle. Link to Our Ford Web Page Index
