Default Dana 44 short side inner shaft...

I am looking for either a Chevy 44 short side inner shaft, or a 1970s F150 short side inner shaft. Needs to be around 18-5/16" long and use a 297 u-joint. I am going to use this for an early bronco 44. Thanks.

That's end-to-end, or splined end-to-center of u-joint?

I have been trying to figure that out... I have seen that called out as the length of an EB short side shaft, but no explanation of where to where. I was hoping someone on here would know.

Either way, a chevy 44 shaft or the '70s f150 shaft will do the job for me.

The inner with the white tape on it is marked "F-150 297x".

F-150 is to long I think, you need a chevy axle shaft for exact fit.

Would any of these be correct? Perhaps the one in the back? I marked the stub Jeep/Chevy since the stubs are the same, but I don't know which application the shafts really came from.

I think the closest one looks right. 18.31" center to end

That one was "trimmed" by someone before coming to me in order to be at that length The splines are shorter, but may still have plenty of engagement. It does have a Ford stub on it, though.

Yep... the closest one looks like an F150 shaft that was trimmed for an EB 44. The Jeep/Chevy shaft would be too short. I'll shoot you a PM.
