Basically re-furbishing my Dana 70F axle in my 69' 1300D. I reused all of the same races, bushings and bearings. Doing so I also re-used all of the same shims thinking if it was in spec prior it should be following (my truck is VERY original with 4,600 miles). The passenger side was barely within specification at 21-22 ft/lbs of breaking torque (this was taken per shop manual with no axle shaft or knuckle seal). Today I installed the drivers side and would say it is 17-18 ft/lbs breaking torque. I am looking to get my numbers more to mid spec at 30 ft/lbs (if its worth the time). Per torque king what I need to do is remove some bottom shims in order to increase the pre-load on the bearing. Can anyone confirm this? I was going to go out and buy some more shims, but it looks like I need to do the opposite to get back within spec. This truck will be a weekend show rig, so not many miles per year.
