Like the title says, anyone out there actually installed the wear ring on the rear yoke? It's not like a speedy sleeve where it has the flange and the cup to drive it on. It's just the ring. I remember my old man doing similar installs years ago, and he was just telling me that adding some heat to it to get it to expand and she'll practically fall on. Who's got some experience with this.:|

Put yoke in freezer for several hrs and put sleeve in oven on 400 for a hr. Then work fast .

I thought this was a Commander forum... not Home Economics class baking cakes!??

I just got a new rear axle and it’s larger OD. There’s no way a wear ring will go on the end. Are they made now where you don’t require a wear ring?

Like Acefire said. I left mine in the freezer overnight, then used the heat gun on the sleeve, and then gently tapped it on, with a piece of wood against it, with a light hammer. Worked out well.

Yeah he bought a new drive shaft . The new yokes don’t use a wear sleeve. It’s the same OD as the old yokes with the wear sleeve. But now when the seal starts leaking he will be buying a new yoke not just a sleeve. Only down fall to the new yokes .

I don’t remember exact price, but I got a complete new shaft (with 2 new u joints installed) for less than $100
