these axles are from a 79 ford bronco. they wheeled perfect the weekend i pulled them from the rusty truck they were from. front comes with radius arms, track bar and all the tierods. rear is complete 9 inch drum to drum.
3.50 ratio open. 275.00 for the pair

would swap the nine for a good 44 rear 60 to 65 in wide

Joe, not interested in the axles but wonder why a D44 rear ? An 8.8 would be cheaper and a helluva lot stronger

8.8 is a c-clip axle though, D44 isnt

9" would be stronger than both of those. granted its not as easy to do disk brakes as the 8.8 or D44.
So,
The rotor will keep the axle from coming out if the C clip breaks. Plenty of kits to change to clipless.

Yes the 9 inch is stronger but the pinion angle sucks. Pinion centerline is 2.25 below axle centerline. 8.8 is about 1.125. A big differance in a short wheelbase
