Re: 1/2 ton to a 3/4 ton front axle
Don't even think of control arms or nuckles, Just think of the axle itself. I don't really care if the outers are 1/2 instead of 3/4. That's why I'd be keeping the 1/2 ton stuff. The 3/4 is 1.5" longer from flange, to flange than the 1/2 and the only difference on the mount up from axle to frame is on the passenger side where the 2 bolts from the axle are approx. 1/2" further apart. The CV shaft to flange bolt pattern is slightly different but nothing a drill press and tap can't solve. Actuators are the same. So, why not?
Kid, I can see where you're getting at the the D44, but that's why I'm building a mud truck, so I can keep this one a good DD.
