dana 44 8 lug to 10 bolt

i read some where that you could use the hub and brakes off of a dana 44 3/4 ton 8 lug and put them on a gm 10 bolt... i was wondering if this is true because i have a 14 bolt rear and want to use my 8 lug rims but dont have the money to rebuild the dana 44 right now...any help is much apreciated.

As long as the hubs look similar then it's a straight swap. If you've got an older Dana 44 then it might get ugly with steering stuff if you don't have the original center link.
