Do they make anything worth a damn anymore

Rear axle bearings, from japan 10,000 miles on them tops, and theyre gone. The factory ones lasted 120,000 miles. New pinion seal, 1,000 miles leaks 140wt lucas like theres no tommorow.

Spending the money to go with dana's looks better everyday.

Anybody got any idea who makes seals and bearings that are worth using.

Same here, i changed my axle seals less than 6000miles ago and they started to leak again. I'm i'v changed out 5 u-joints and still have 2 more to change out soon.

Re: Do they make anything worth a damn anymore

Are you using good Suzuki parts, or crapy aftermarket junk. I replaced the million mile rear wheel bearing seals and bearings only once on my rear axle with origianl Suzuki parts, and never had an issue with them despite a fully built rig that saw a lot of miles and wheeling.

I was making the assumption that if you were bone stock, you'd experience less problems. (opinion [img]images/graemlins/laugh.gif[/img]).

Re: Do they make anything worth a damn anymore

Zuknut, what he probably meant was your rig isn't stock, therefor, your putting more strian on the
components with bigger tires, offset wheels, lower gearing, etc... All that means even the factory
stuff won't live as long as it would in a stocker.

It still seen some of the aftermarket stuff is pretty bad though. I have had Ujoints not last 15K, for
instance and that's with my 5 out of 6 OEM original joints still working fine... switched brands it seems
to be lasting better.
