Dana 44

I am looking to put a Dana 44 front axle in my 1998 TJ now that I have taken the D30 to hell and back over the last 4 years.

What I am looking for is a Front drivers side drop, leaf sprung, High Pinion, 5 lug, Dana 44. Maybe from a late 70's / early 80's Ford truck, Waggy, J10, Etc.
Let me know what you have for sale. The sooner the better.

I am also open to looking at a ready to bolt on 44 if you are moving on to bigger axles.

PM or post what you have for sale. Thanks ahead of time!

FYI, if you want high pinion, you'll only be looking at ford D44s. And the full size Bronco solid axle D44s typically have radius arm mounts cast to the housing, making them not ideal for leafs springs, and also makes them more difficult to cut down to Jeep width.

An Early Bronco high pinion D44 would be a great score, but they are getting rare. And be aware that there were some standard rotation (low pinion) D44s in EBs too.

Yep, and to make it worse, FSJ axles will be 6-lug, unless you want an closed knuckle variety from the lates 60s, early 70s. (and you don't want that...)

I thought I have read that the EB 44's aren't much stonger then the TJ d30?

Are you telling me that all the Jeep 44s are going to be low pinion then?

Please school me. I have been trying to read as much as I can the last two weeks while searching for my axle. The details I listed above are given me by the guy that is building this axle for me. As a side note: he will be redrilling the knuckles to a 5x4.5 so I can use my current rims.

If you want a high pinion 5 lug then get a 73-76 ford truck axle, then put 78-79 outers on it so you have disc brakes. You will have solid tubes from the pig to the knuckle and the cast c's for the radius arms can be removed and youll have disc brakes.

I happen to have one for sale fully built with 5.13 gears if you need one. or at least I was able to pass along some knowledge.

Good luck with your build.
