Default 1/2 Ton Ford D44 vs. 3/4 Ton Ford D44

Can anyone tell me what if anything is interchangable between these axles? Looking at possible picking up a 3/4 ton D44 but know these are not as common as the 1/2 ton ones and am wondering if it is going to be hard to find spare parts for it such as shafts. Any info would be great. Thanks.

The outer shafts, housing, spindles, wheel bearings, ball joints, and differential components are the only things that are interchangeable. The 3/4 ton version uses different knuckles, dual piston calipers, and obviously 8 lug rotors and hubs.

Incorrect, the housing is different and they use different length inner axle shafts. F-250 housing is 3" diameter axle tube where the F-150 uses 2 3/4"

That said they are not that hard to find and plenty of aftermarket parts are available
