Default Anyone run these Spindle bearings?

Looks like a nice setup. Thinking about getting these for my dana 60. They also make a greaser for the spindle...

Yes, have been running those bushings for the last year.. Checked them after about 4 runs and they still looked like new. Will be checking them again soon. I have a lot of miles on them now. I can post an update.

I like that they will not mess up the stub shaft like the rusty needle bearings will once they get wet.

That's what I was thinking as well. If you keep them greased there should be no reason they should go bad. How many miles do you have on them?

Wonder how these would work on a street vehicle with the front axles spinning all the time? A friend of mine used my lathe and made some brass ones a few years ago and they have still held up to a welded front end thats gets abused alot. Took a lot of time to make them. He dont drive it on the street though
