Well.. izwacH says how about trying some Loctite on the outer spindle nut? :D If it backs off again, then obviously the Loctite didnt work.

Of course now that I reread the entire freaking thread, I see Maniak has already suggested that to you.

Oh and that just goes to show you that when IZ swaps to his 60 that you need to get his 44

...first sign is wheel pulling slighty to one side...also an unexplained clunk, or pop...with the big tires you don't feel it as much...and some slight brake fade...usually all 3 are related...

cyber, if you don't have these signs don't play with it, lol...it's an anoying little pita and bearings are about 45 bucks each time...i'm sure we will be discussing it at truck haven...;)

I may have no choice in the matter since I have to do the front brakes SOON and that includes having to replace the rotors since there badly warped and probably out of spec anyways. and oh yeah i still need to find brake lines too:(

I really doubt the spindle is a problem, this is pretty common problem with dana 35/44's. make sure that the clockwasher isnt spinning out of the groove on the spindle, if it is you need to build up the tab with weld so it fits tighter. I bet that will fix 99% of your problems.

Past that, look into the new stage 8 spindle nut system, 50 bucks a side but suppost to never come loose.

Some people keep saying that the D44 lock nuts will fit the D35 but Rick tried it and said it was a no go ....:dunno:

Yeah Stage8 doesnt have them for anything below the D44 -- I looked desperately when we first started this thread and couldnt find it.

d44 should fit a d35 unless the spindle is a different thread the nuts use the same socket.
