Axle Question

I have a Jeep, but I was considering puting Bronco axles under it and have some ?'s
1) What year started the D44(Disc brake) front and 9" rear (Drum)?
2) What's the width of this set up?

Any help will be much appreciated!!!!
Thanx in advance,

Re: Axle Question

I'm no expert, but I think they all had rear 9"s, as far as front d44 with disks, that came in '76-'77. I'm not exactly sure of widths, but I run them under my Toy, and they are within 1" of stock. I converted my '74 d44 to disks using '79 Bronco knuckles out. You could probably bolt on a set of Jeep d44 knuckles without any fuss.

Re: Axle Question

all 66-77 bronco's had 9inch rears with a width of 53" flange to flange. in 76 the 44 went to disk's but any thing (chevy,ford,etc.)with disks on the front and having a 44 will bolt on and work. i have a 74 pro-stock bronco and use chevy stuff on mine. only one draw back is 6 bolt pattern on the front wheels.also there is a cheap way to do rear disks e-mail me if you want more info.

Re: Axle Question

ANY BRONCO AFTER 72 HAD A 44 FRONT END BUT THEY WERNT DISK UNTIL 75-77 BUUUTTT,
THE DISKS FROM A 150 P/U WILL WORK AND THE AXLE SHAFTS ARE SAME SO ALL YOU NEED ARE THE BRAKE PARTS.

Re: Axle Question

What changes happened to front and rear axles after '77? Are '78 and '79 axles compatible with '76 and '78? Widths & diff positions?

Thanks,
Steve

Re: Axle Question

After '77 the Bronc's went full size, so the axles aren't interchangable, but the diff parts (mostly) are. The 9" rear would center the same, but be wider. On the D44 front the pumpkin would be further inboard per axle width, so you couldn't get a 0 degree lateral driveshaft angle with the diff centered from the early Bronco t-case. You'd probably want to use a Jeep D44 for the front anyways to keep the pumpkin on the right side (pun intended).
