So.. parts store trip confirmed my rotors are the 2.5” tall. On a side note is this the correct tool for the bearing nuts? Thanks.

That looks like it's for a full float rear end. I don't think it will work for your front bearings. That snout will be in the way.

I think you need PT 648473.

Back to the drawing board. Installed new rotors/races/bearings and noise still exists but ONLY in 4x4. Whatís the next thing to check besides gear oil?

Next is to get it on jack stands and run it in 4x4 while you lay under it to figure out where the noise is coming from.

Wow, thanks soo much for the help! Iím suspecting spindle bearings if nothing internal on the Dana. Do you know where I can get a new spindle seat? Mines rusted up and falling apart. Is it called something else?
