Ten Factory rear axle shaft bearings

My passenger rear axle shaft bearing crapped out on me. Anyone have a part number for a replacement? I'm hoping this is something that can be sourced local. Heading out on a wheeling trip Friday.



Pulled the diver side and it was fine but I'm going to replace it too since its out.

It was a rotational clunk that only came when I was on the gas and started when I took a sharp left turn. When it started on Thursday It sounded like it was coming from the rear DS or axle. I got under the jeep and inspected everything, looking for anything loose or showing contact with something else. The Rear DS is fairly new and all its joints looked normal.

This morning I laid the back seat down and laid down in the back with my ear to the floor in different areas while a friend drove around. By the location of the sound I was guessing an axle bearing. Pulled it and...bingo!

No reason to ship something overnight, cross country if I can get it local. If its an OEM bearing, I've got jeep dealers right here.

Measured the OD of the stock axle shaft at the bearing collar, 1.563"
Measured the OD of the Ten Factory shaft, same thing, 1.563

The OD of the bearing has obviously got to fit in the stock axle tube.

I guess the answer to the question, as some have mentioned, is OEM bearings or like sized aftermarket will fit.

I just wasn't sure if the OD of the Ten Factory shafts were the same as the stock shafts at the bearing. They are...so I'll rock on with OEM sized bearings. Looks like NAPA has some as well.

I just bought mine at the local dealership when I replaced everything in my axles. It didn't hurt much!

Did they have a kit that included the seals, bearings and bearing retainer or was everything individual?

how much...looks like Napa has them for $49.99 but that is just the bearing and retainer, no seal

I lost both rear seals after a ham fisted tech pulled the shafts during a re-gear . Northridge David fixed me up w/everything. You'll have to drill and break the collars, then use a bearin separator to pull from the retainers inward. Careful who u farm it out to if that's necessary, hacks abound.

I bought the seals separate. The retainer came with the bearings. And yes, you have drill and cut the old retainers off.

Local jeep dealer; bearings $57 and Seals $23
Moparonlineparts.com; bearings $39.99, Seals $16
Local Napa; bearings $23(OEM) or $49(napa gold), Seals $23

I have a time constraint so I am not going to try and rush ship via moparonline. I am going to hit up Napa. They also have a machine shop and will press the bearings on.

Sorry for the dumb question... but do bad bearings look like this?

When i pull out my old shafts both bearings looked like this.

Also i have a noise comming from my rear axle, and the bearing was seperated like this.

Thanks,

That picture doesn't really show much. If your bearing pulls away from the axle shaft at all as you are spinning it or is wobbly and not a clean tight press fit on the shaft then they are bad.

Just a heads up for those of you that live in areas that don't have great parts stores or the prices are insanely high, Amazon carries timken bearing sets that can be had for a good price.

I had to replace a couple of rear wheel seals in 2011 on my '04 rubicon. Of course to replace the seal you need a minimum of a new retainer, probably a bearing too. So I shopped locally (Moab) and found the bearing and seal for about $85.

Amazon carried the same Timken SET10 bearing and retainer set for $30.33 and the Timken seal (9912S) for $16.32.

I believe the same set and seals are used on the D44 in the JK as well. Current pricing looks to be $29.93 and $15.22!

I had the same clunk with a set of G2's which I think are the same shafts. G2 warrantied them since the shafts were only 3 months old. I had a brand new set of Superiors so I just put them in and the G2's will be my spares now.

G2 warrantied a shaft due to a bearing issue? That is a little weird but pretty cool for you.
