Default CJ Dana 44

I'm having trouble finding parts for my dana 44 in an 86 cj 7, most parts stores only show parts for the AMC 20 rear end. are things such as wheel bearings, carrier bearings, seals the same as any other 44? and if not is there any vehicle/axle combo that is the same?

86 CJ-7 part - ID of Bearing=1.375

86 J10 part - ID of Bearing 1.5630

in the parts list for the J10 it is identified as a spicer 44 axle where the cj list does not identify the axle, so why the difference in diameter of axle shaft? or is that normal for axle shafts to very within the 44 "family" from application to application or is the cj listing for the AMC 20?


sorry but i think ill be hanging onto this axle, just got a front to match it

I run a 1986 CJ-7 Dana 44 rear as well, and I have been able to get brake parts, seals, and bearings at the local carquest here in town. The books that they have show both available options (AMC 20 and Dana 44), so maybe it is possible that they could have overlooked it, or maybe try a different store?

If you look up the same part for a 1985 CJ-7 (or any other 80's CJ-7) and its there (which that one is), its a C20 part. The Rear Axle parts list for the 85 is about a page and a half shorter because the D44 parts are not listed.

I have the 86 D44 in my CJ... One thing I know for a fact is the axle bearing is a Timken 10. At least it is something.

I was referring to the "one of the few" comment.

Sorry about the wording. According to the guy behind the counter they are licensed by dana not cert. "There are only a few licensed Dana shops left in Mi. Lots of places work on them and sell parts, just about any repair facility. But not many are licensed by dana" Was what he said to me, may be a crock. But dana axle and tcase parts are pretty reasonable there, pinion nuts and seals were 1/2 price to most places.. They also repair and make driveshafts.
