I think the driver side are off brand chromos the 9" is spooled the 44 has a tight trutrac not sure on gears. They are 71/72 EB axles with disk break conversion and comaro calipers.

I forgot to ask if you still had the old one lying around, might want a few things off it before you scrap or part out?

yep i still have the red one. Its packed with scrap and sitting on a trailer. I have to remove the suspension from it and its going bye bye in two weeks.


Now that i have these axles people are trying to talk me into tons. Talk me in or out of it. If you talk me into it find someone to buy my axles.

Why go to tons? Because it's what the cool kids seem to be doing? I don't think you'll have a problem with the 44/9 combo. Curb hasn't broke his.

BTW, do you have a scrap 35 or 8 1/4 housing? I need the shock mounts off of it, the brackets that weld to the housing.

I guess the only reason to go tons would be so i would never have to worry about a tire size and horse power limit. That being said I have yet to break either of my stock dana axles with a 35" tire and a clapped out 4.0. I have a small block that could change that. I really think that I should stick with the 44/9 that i have because they are complete and still a slight upgrade. Greg and I did notice that the nine inch is so narrow that my leafs and my calpiers may not work well together.

Yes I have the 35 under the red one at gregs. If you want the brackets you can cut them off. I plan on being down there this weekend to strip the suspension from it.

Hasn't curb had luck with the "almost alloy" kit?

I vote 1 tons fir a couple reasons.
1. You have to get different wheels either way if you go one ton or use the 44/9

2. Tons will give you a wider stance. Your 44/9 are very narrow making a side roll easier.

3. Your going with a v8, you should have lots more torque and horse power then currently

4. Why not do it once and be done with it.
