Comments: 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!

Comments: 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
Admin reply: Hi Bill,
Thanks so much for the kind words. I really do appreciate it!

Comments: 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?

Comments: What can I say... your website is amazingly thorough. I have owned four 7.3's over the years, the most recent being a 2001 F350 Crew cab DRW. I was fortunate to find it a year ago in Arizona - 41,000 miles! AWSOME truck! This truck I plan to keep for a l o n g time. Since then I have been collecting information, actually a 2001 version of your site. However, nothing as detailed. Is it possible that you have templates of your spreadsheets available? Thanks!
