Hi, i just got a set of alloy usa rear axles for my jk rubicon which i ordered to be assembled with everything pressed on but came un assembled.
looking at the parts i got, i got
the 2 axles
tone rings X2
bearing axle shaft X 2 (the bigger bearings)
retain ring bearing x2 (holds the bearing in place?)
seal out X 2
but i didn't get this bit that i have terribly outlined in red from grimmjeeper.
was i meant to get that? or do i need to get that off my old shafts? i havent pulled them yet, but does that mean i have to take off the 2 bearings and seal to get that piece off? what is everyone calling that? i assume it just secures the axle to the housing. is this the retaining plate?
so in order from first item to last in order of pressing on it goes
1) tone ring
2) retaining plate (if that's what its called)
3) seal out
4) bearing axle shaft
5) retain ring?
so the tone ring should be 1/8 to 1/4" from the hub end of the shaft? or from where the shaft steps down to the smaller diameter at the diff end?
then the reatiner plate is pressed on up against the tone ring?
the seal goes hard up to the retainer plate
the bearing goes hard up against the seal?
the bearing retainer goes hard up against the bearing?
bit annoying having to take this retainer plate off the other shafts, means i wont have spares.
