I've been in the process of replacing my ball joints, and in doing so I've broken one of the spindle nut spacer things. the othen was cracked in 2 places. i need help finding this spindle nut spacer thing. i went to the ford dealer here and they had 2 different ones in stock and nether of them where the right one. then they ordered the othen one and that one was close but not the right amount of splines. so if any could direct me in the right direction that would be appreciative. here a few pictures of what i have.

it is on a 89 full size bronco. 302, auto tran, i believe the front end is the spicier 44 (or whatever is stock) it has had powertrax lockers installed. I'm not sure if it had auto hubs stock or not. has manual hubs now tho. and i cant find a tag for the diff, I've looked all over the front end trying to find it. even looked in the glove box and center counsel.

here is both of um. the one in 3 pieces was the driver side and the othen is the passenger side


here a closer look at the cracked one


and the driver spindle


and the passenger spindle


thank for the help on every thing so far.

Junkyard. I have pulled many hubs and never came across them. I remvoed mine when I did the Warn premium hubs and just have a steel thrsut washer in there. Not sure if the dealer can get them..

Just go to a driveline shop or any gear shop. They'll probably have them hanging on the wall. I know the onces here do.

That spacer is for the 5 bolt auto hubs. Just get rid of the garbage hubs and get some manuals, then you won't have to worry about that stinkin washer.

Well then, toss em. You don't need them. The c clip that goes in front of that washer, toss it too.

Your truck originally had auto hubs. Someone converted it, and left them in there. They're not needed no more. :thumbup

today i went to get the bearings and wheel seals and the right ones were for the auto hubs. so it looks like i did have auto hubs. and I've got manual hubs on it now, so i don't need that spacer and clip then?

Correct. When the auto hubs are installed, only a smidgen of the splines marry into the hub. The washer is there to lock the axle shaft from falling out of the auto hub.
