Rear Dana 44 - 2013 JKU

Noticed oil leaking on the passenger side of my rear Dana 44 after getting home from an off road outing this past weekend. Is there a part number for a kit with all the parts needed to address this?

Thanks...

you need 6. retainer and axle seal

but you need it to be pressed in

You can re-use the axle retainer plate. It's the seal you will need to replace and to do so you will also need a new bearing and bearing retainer. The existing bearing and bearing retainer need to be cut offroad remove the bad seal and replace

The axle retainer plate and seal just slide on. The bearing and bearing retainer get pressed on

i dont think they sell just the seal though. it's the retainer and seal one unit? and you're right about the bearing not being reusable. cant you just press the bearing off?

They do sell the rear seal individually

I'm sure it's possible to press off the bearing and bearing retainer, anything is possible, but it's not going to be easy and you'll likely damage the bearing. I also don't thing the bearing retainer should be re-used...it is a very, very tight pressed on fit and probably won't fit right if re-used.

Got a press? Give it a try and let us know.

The thing is, bearings are relatively cheap and if you have the axle broke down it makes sense to put a new one in regardless

then he'll need a whole set up anyway. why buy the seal separately?

He won't need the axle retainer plate. Which is what I said in my first post in this thread. I also said in my first post that he would need a bearing and bearing retainer(they usually come together in the ones I have bought)

YOU asked if the rear axle seal and axle retaining plate were sold together or individually and I answered you. They are sold individually and he doesn't need a new axle retaining plate...

YOU told him he need #6 in that parts diagram which is wrong. #6 is the axle retainer plate which he already has and doesn't need to be replaced. He needs the seal which is #5 and then bearing and bearing retainer, #4 and 3. Nos. 4 and 3 have come together in the aftermarket bearings I have purchased. You can get them much cheaper than those prices from quadratech
