dana 44

Simple question I hope. Is going from a GM 10 bolt to a Dana 44 a straight swap? The dana 44's were on a 3/4 ton pickup.

I think so. Someone will verify. Only thing you may need is a conversion u joint. Why are u making this swap?

If you keep your calipers, yes.

Re: dana 44

I'm thinking about making the swap. From what I understand (which is limited) the dana 44 is a stronger axle than the GM 10 bolt. Do you agree?

It may be a tiny bit stroger, but a new 10 bolt can be stroger than a old d44, thats how negligable it will be

The 44 is some what stronger. Was the 10 bolt a 3/4 ton? If not, the widths will be different. The 3/4s are a few inches wider.
