6.) Next, the axlehousing is given a thorough cleaning. This ensures tiny microscopic metal shavings are removed from inner surfaces.
7.) A set of 4.56 ring-and-pinion gears from Precision Gear was installed next.
8.) We picked a Detroit Locker as a traction aid. Simple and strong, this differential is hard to beat.
9.) Thirty-five-spline alloy shafts were used in our Dana 60 buildup.
10.) With all the parts of the axle assembled, the housing was serialized in two places. This number is recorded on a build-sheet record, which remains on file at Dynatrac. This way, anyone can track down what parts were used in the axle. This helps prevent fraudulent activity as well. Then the axle was installed in our project Titan. It almost looks like it came with the truck, except for the trick Dynatrac diff cover.
