Re: Axle type

There should be a metal tag bolted onto the diff cover that'll tell you. Also there should either be a 30 or 44 casted into the housing ribs. More than likely it's a 30. Also look at the knuckles. I believe the 30's used old style trunion bearings rather than the upper and lower ball joints.

'95 Ford Ranger, 347cid engine, NP435/Dana 20 (3.15:1 gears), 4.88 Powerlock Dana 44 front, 4.88 Strange spool 9" rear, Wrangler springs in front, 38X15.50X15 TSL Swamper Radials
