The ball joint write up was perfect. Thanks for taking the time to make it so detailed. I can't imagine having to do this job without this page pulled up on my laptop.
For anyone ordering the Timken hubs through Amazon be warned they come with course thread wheel studs. My 2003 F250 has fine thread. It was $63 for 16 lug nuts at the local dealership.

Admin reply: Hi Scott,

Thanks for posting. I appreciate the nice comments. That's a good tip about the lug nuts for your 03.

Regards,
Jerry

Thanks for collecting and posting the torque specs. I had to replace a wheel bearing hub because the one I used last year was defective. Nice to have all those numbers in one place.

I noticed you thought the Bilstein 4600 shocks were a bit harsh. I went with the Bilstein 7100 series which allows you to set the gas pressure to suit your prefrence. Ive had them for 10 years and have had to top off the gas pressure once but still haven't needed to rebuild them yet. Lots of $$ but for the front end I think they are well worth price.

Admin reply: Robin - thanks for the tip and for posting!

Sir: I happen by your site looking for parts for my F-350. I have worked around diesels all my life 53 years. I have over 30 diesels on my farm, I spent most of my time repairing or upgrading them. My comment to you is, “this is the best site I ever seen.” I have a complete library of service manuals and belong to many paid internet DIY. Your site is by far beat all of the others put together

Quick question regarding the dust seal that seals the end of the axle tube. I purchased a new one (mine was torn up) and it looks exactly like your pictures. But it is too large in diameter to go inside the axle tube. It fits perfectly on the seal area on the axle itself. Did yours slide/press inside of the axle tube or just press against the outside of it?

Thanks.
