SAS\'ERS

Anyone who used the ford high pinion 8 lug axles know if the lug pattern is the same as the chevy 8 lug ??? Im looking at the 78-79 model eras, And also what rim size
and backspacing does it require . Thanks in advance,

Guess that largely depends on what you are putting it under...

With the older axles they are the same. The newer axles that are in the fords use a different pattern. I think.

Re: SAS\'ERS

The Ford Bolt pattern for that year is the same as the chevy 8 lug. Bolt pattern can be changed easily.
Solid axle swap tip if you buy a 78-79 hi pinion axle:
Find one from a F250 as it has larger axle tubes. You can also swap the ford calipers and knuckles for Chevy ones.
They are cheaper and easier to find parts.
Good Luck.

Re: SAS\'ERS

you could swap alot of parts on any d44 houseing. you can go with d44 parts, 10 bolt parts, make it 5 6 or 8 lug. just depends on what you want.

just amke sure what you want before you anything or youl end up going 6 abd 8 2 difreint times and have more parts laying around. and realize that theryre was nothing wrong with the ford 8 lug to start with .
