Default Front Axle Question 1971 Scout II

When looking at either end of my front axle right before the ujoints, the passenger side is pushed out a little, the driver side is flush. Can someone explain, is this right??

No that isn't right, I'd say you are missing the snap ring that goes on the end of the stub axle that is supposed to keep it tight up against the seal. If it's been running like that it wouldn't be a bad idea to tear it down and inspect the spindle bearing since it may have become contaminated.

X2. C clip is off of it. If it were your rear axle, it would have passed you going down the road.

Thanks for the responses. Is the clip accessible from the differential? I'm looking at my manual and don't see snap rings.

The Dana axles IH used don't have C-Clips. I think by snap rings Eric meant within in the spindle.

I have the Lock-A-Matic hubs. I'm looking at the diagram in my manual (CTS2304 page 2209-H middle diagram) and see a few lock rings, can anyone tell me which they would think is the culprit?

Never taken the hubs off.

Take them off, clean up and inspect.

It will be an external snap-ring on the end of the stub shaft as at pokes out of the spindle. Take the cover plate off the locking hub and you shoud see it (maybe after a little cleaning). Take both sides apart and compare.

Yes the snap ring I was referring to is the one on the stub axle under the outer body of the hub. That snap ring will not show up in the exploded diagram of the hubs since it is not technically part of the hub.

Do as Mark stated and pull the outer hub body bey removing the 6 bolts and compare the 2 sides. You'll likely have to clean some grease off but you should then be able to see the snap ring on the one side.

Interesting thread. Keep us posted on what you find. Mine does the same thing but the snap ring mentioned is attached on mine so that might not be your problem.
