Re: Swapping in a Killer
>>>>Just to answer a question on axles-the HD44 is the same as the standard 44 except it is made for a 3/4 ton. This means it has 8 lug hubs instead of 5. I believe the ball joints may be different too. The axle shaft strength, differentials, and ring and pinons were the same. This is the same on the twin-beam axles too. And, keep in mind that both HD axles have spring perches for leaf springs, not coils. Roland---don't forget the F-150 and Bronco at this time were mechanically the same in many ways---the front axle set-up was the same between both and had the same track widthes and diff placement-either would be great donor. Hope this helps. Laters.
