Parts for Dana-Spicer Model 60 Front Axles in 1999-2004 Ford F-450, F550 4x4 Trucks
Ford F-450 and F-550 Super Duty® 4x4 cab and chassis trucks built from 1999 through the end of the 2004 model year use a Dana 60 front axle that is quite similar to the Dana 60 used in Dual Rear Wheel (DRW) F-350 trucks of the same vintage with the exception of bigger brakes.

Most of the Model 60 axle components for the F-450 and F-550 remained unchanged throughout the six year product cycle (1999-2004), 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 1999 to 2004 Super Duty®.

Compared to the preceding Ford 4x4 front axles, your 1999 to 2004 era Super Duty® 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.

The Model 60 front axle in F450, F550 4x4s was replaced by a 7000 pound capacity Dana Super 60 for the 2005 model year.

Axle Shafts and Axle Shaft Small Parts
The Achilles Heel of the 1999-2004 era Ford Super Duty 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 inner and outer axle shafts for your 1999 to 2004 Ford Super Duty® Model 60 Front Axle. Link to Our Ford Web Page Index

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 1999 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 1999-2004 Super Duty's. 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 Web Page Index
Unshielded Knuckle Seal QU40233 1999-2002 Unshielded Outer Axle Shaft to Steering Knuckle Seal is a genuine original equipment part that will directly replace the Unshielded Seals used on 1999-2002 Ford Super Duty® Model 60 Front Axle. QU40233 will also work on 2003-2004 axle shafts that originally had QU20035 Shielded Seals.
Shielded Knuckle Seal QU20035 2003-2004 Shielded Outer Axle Shaft Seal is a genuine original equipment part that will directly replace the Shielded Seals used on 2003-2004 Ford Super Duty® Model 60 Front Axle. QU20035 will NOT fit 1999-2002 axle shafts that originally had QU40233 Unshielded Seals.

QK4847 2002-2004 Super Duty Knuckle Seal Kit with 2nd Design Shielded Knuckle Seal includes two each: Shielded Knuckle Seals, Wheel Hub O-Rings, Hub-Lock O-Rings, and Hub-Lock Retaining Ring. This Kit is specific to 2003-2004 Ford Super Duty® Front Axles so it will NOT work on 1999-2002 axle shafts that originally were equipped with an unshielded seal.

QK4846 2nd Design Knuckle and Hub Seal Kit with QT1515 Installer Instead of buying individually priced QT1515 Seal Installer plus the seals and o-rings that need to be replaced anytime your Ford Super Duty® axle shafts are removed save $$$ and purchase this Kit which includes QT1515 Axle Shaft to Knuckle Seal Installer, plus two each Shielded Knuckle Seals, Wheel Hub O-Rings, and Hub-Lock O-Rings. This Kit is specific to 2003-2004 Ford Super Duty® Front Axles so it will NOT work on 1999-2002 axle shafts that originally were equipped with an unshielded seal.
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.
