Originally designed for the military, Stage 8’s X Lock Spindle Nut replacement systems have become a must-have for serious off-road enthusiasts since they debuted in 2006.
Standard spindle nut systems loosen and can’t confront the harshest off-road conditions. Stage 8’s X Lock Spindle Nut systems can replace Dana 44, 60 and 70 spindle nuts and are laser cut from 4130 steel for a perfect fit. They install easily without the need for specialized tools.
Extremely adaptable for most applications, the spindle nut itself can be locked in any positions and will maintain a required bearing preload value.
Stage 8 X-Lock Spindle Nut systems come with four parts: a specialized bearing washer, the spindle nut (which can be set to an individual pre-load value), a notched washer (which has an inside tab that fixes its position in relation to the locating groove in the spindle), a locking retainer and a heavy spring steel snap ring. Additionally, the assembly is available in a limited space version.
