    confused Axle housing swap



    Hey guys,


    After being told my front axle housing is bent, I've ordered a Prorock 44 unlimited with the dynatrac ball joints and raised track mount bracket.
    It's being delivered today.


    I'm trying to get an idea of what other things I should order when doing the internals swap. Currently have the drag link flip kit from JKS and the Dynatrac crush sleeve with shims. What else should I 'freshen' up, seals/bearings wise? I don't need to use those plastic axle shaft guides in this new housing do I?

    I'm not too smart on all the parts in an axle housing and appreciate the input.

    What front axle do you currently have? Are you sure the internals will swap over?

    Currently have the stock rubicon dana 44, according to Dynatrac the prorock 44 is machined for a direct swap of the Rubicon internals (ring, pinion, axle shaft, e-locker).

    Just wasn't sure if I should also get new axle tube seals or anything seal/bearing related.

    I would replace the seals for sure, bearings are probably OK. The plastic guides are not necessary but they do help get the long side shaft aligned.
