Re: Front axle issues

1984 is a late axle. Seals are different, but easier to get for the late style. The bushing you are asking about is often called a waffle bushing and should never have contact unless there is extreme impact or severe wheel bearing or CV wear. I've seen wear on these, but usually not to the point of ...

Re: Front axle issues

Early axles have the seals near diff. Late are at the opening to the steering knuckle. Otherwise the process is the same. The axle tube seals are not in the kit you posted - they usually need to be purchased separately.

Re: Front axle issues

Two star lock washers for hub nuts. Two foam dust seals for hubs. Two inner hub seals. Two outer hub seals. Instead of silicone use Loctite 515 for gasket substitute. Be prepared to replace the CVs (zero play or replace - measured when in neutral orientation). Don't forget CV grease, Wheel bearing g...

These topics have been covered hundreds of times and you will learn much more from searching than a small handful of responses.

Re: Front axle issues

Adam, what Baddy said is right. You need a full front axle service. Is it "possible" that your king pin bearings are still okay? Yes, but very unlikely, due to water exposure - even from just driving in the rain. Wheel bearings should never be removed and installed again. You're talking ab...
