30 spline dana 44 and 30 spline dana 60 shafts are both 30 spline 1.31" identical shafts.

30 spline does not equal 30 spline always (if the diameters are different).

But in this case, yeah, 30 spline dana 60s use 'dana 44' shafts..

The shaft is the same size with comparable strength.

The design of the full float puts less strain on the shaft. So you get to use all of it's available strength to turn the tires, not hold the vehicle up AND turn the tires.

ding ding ding.. we have a winner. run the 30 spline til you break it. which if you do most of your wheeling in michigan you probably wont. if it does you can either start carrying spares or spend the time and money to do the work of changing it over to 35 spline.

I have not busted one yet but I only run mud, I think they are good until you run crazy low gears. Then they shear off pretty easy. But with 38s it should be fine.

I have ran 30 spline REAR 60's in my last to rigs never broke a rear. You will not have 1/2 the stress as the front. I too say run them.
