Quoted from TheRangerStation...

http://www.therangerstation.com/tech_library/Dana44.htm

"Another thing to watch out for with the early Bronco Dana 44 is the brakes. 1971-1975 Ford Bronco's have drum front brakes. 1976-1977 Ford Bronco's have 11-inch disc brakes. If you end up with a drum brake Dana 44 you can convert it to disc brakes. Find a 1978-1979 Ford Bronco or a 1973-1979 Ford F-150 and get the following parts:

Steering knuckle

Brake backing plate

Caliper holder (Haynes calls this the Anchor plate)

Spindle

Wheel bearing locking nut, lock ring washer and wheel bearing adjusting nut

Caliper support key and spring

Rotor (use as a core for a new one)

Locking Hubs

Basically, you'll be needing everything from the knuckles out. You'll be replacing your existing parts with these new ones."



Info on years of various flat top knuckles.

When I converted mine to discs I ended up using most of the parts from a 79 Blazer D44. I used Ford hubs & rotors.
