95 F150 4x4 front spindle/axle/seals/thrust washer/bearings?
The parts houses don't seem to have a thrust washer that goes on the spindle after the outer wheel bearing. Does any one know where to get one or a substitute?
Also the seal for the spindle needle bearing does not come with the bearing. I found one at Rock Auto parts, but wonder how necessary this seal is?
If the parts place does not have the washer go to your dealer
AS for the little $2 spindle bearing seal. I have yet to see one stay in place ... ever! I just pack a crap load of grease in there to try to help keep water out.
1986 F150 4X4 351 4vHO It was a 300 I6 RIP Totaled Hit a probe with the snow plow
1988 F150 4X2 302EFI and 35's Still under 100000 orginal miles.
1989 F250 4X4 351W EFI Basket Case.
1991 F250 4X4 351W EFI More rust then metal.
that never stays in place.
I did pack a crap load of grease in there also so maby I'm good for a while.
Also I changed the sequance of the lock nuts and lock washer. Used the lock washer first in place of the thrust washer, then both nuts. I live in the Ozark Mtn boonies and am following the weather service instructions to watch for a tornado (haven't seen one yet). I'll take a trip into town when it they tell me I can stop watching, and see if the dealer has more than the current year washer in stock...
