Do you have any idea of their applications/condition?

9" desireable factory parts are 31 spline axles, low gears, disc brakes, nodular 3rd members.

The most desired 8.8 will have 4.10 gears and disc brakes from an Explorer/Mountaineer

D44: Since you said Ford axles and Ford didn't use a D44 out back, then desireable D44s are from early Broncos- especially with disc brakes, and the pre-77 HP D44 with welded radius arm mounts.

D60: The 78-79 front w/ kingpins are fetching the most bucks. Rears can be bought for beer or a photo of Ben Franklin.

If you need more help with ID'ing parts, let me know. Before you list anything for sale buy a jumbo bottle of your favorite headache relief pill or spirit. It'll be very helpful when you answer "Will this bolt-in my ________" for the 197th time.
