10.10.20: Don't Fear Solid Axles! Garage Hour Does Dana 50 & You Can Too; w/ Big Trucks Have Big Bolts, Easy R&R, Loaded Hubs, Simple Seals, Geek Technique, Good SAS (Solid-Axle Sources), Terminology Matters,+ Bringing the BFH
There is no Zuul, only Dana (50 and 60). The Garage Hour goons dove into a Dana 50 steer-axle on an F-250 and it was easy (never done it before). Career guys might laugh, but there's plenty of geeks with tool-skill who might be skeered to take one apart. Don't be - and the Gearhead Consultancy is here to help.
From parts sources like West Coast Diffs and AutoZone, Ventures Truck Parts and Denny's, to the comfort you can get by picking up the phone (geeks unite!), the Dana 50 is easy, and any geek will do (it).
