Monday, I am going to be installing a Aussie locker in my 8.8 axle. It states if the spider gears pinon shaft is worn replace and the side gear thrust washer also.

So, I decided to replace anyway. I picked up a new pinon shaft, but the side gear thrust washer does not look like a whasher and want to see if someone here had a pic.

What the Ford dealer parts guy showed me looked more like a 1" sleeve or piece of pipe with a raise ring more or less around the center.

The exploded diagram in my Haynes manual looks to be a flat type washer. Does any have pic, part number, or any help just to make sure getting the right side gear washer.

Top left to right side gear shim, side gear (2 each), Bottom left to right spider gears (2 each), centerpin with retaining bolt, and C-clips (2 each)


Probably buying a aussie too, this weekend. You mean the side gear shim?

the part the parts monkey showed you was a crush collar/sleeve.
there are also side gear shims to be used as well.
i cannot remember if the 8.8 has the crush sleeve in it. it probably does and needs to be replaced and properly installed when the pinion shaft is removed
