Should there be a seal between the axle tube housing and the axle? I cant find a parts store that has one that is 44mm. There wasn't one when I pulled it out. But I had tones of good ol stave inside the tube.

Just found this http://www.ford-trucks.com/article/idx/14/052/article/Dana_44_Front_Axle_Shaft_Ujoint_Replacement_.html

You should also clean out the axle tube. The axle seals for this axle are in the differential as opposed to being at the ends of the tube. Making it easy for the tubes to fill up with sand and dirt. I used a shop vac to clean mine and it worked pretty well.

Just read this. Later
