Re: installing lockright into D44?
dont think it will clear with teh ring gear in place.
but I wouldnt grind it off!
marke the carrier bearing caps for up down and side to side ( reinstall exactly as they come off)
simply remove the carrier, take careful note of the shims on either side, marke the ring gear and carrier ( so you can reinstall in teh same holes in case of runout)
remove ring gear, install lockright, slide it back in, retorqe the caps to spec
now youve not changed your gear setup at all, if you reinstalle the shims that came out.
actually on a dana 44 I tihnk teh shims are pressed on between bearings and carrier so there shouldnt be any loose shims, it should be really simple, just reinstall all parts exactly where they came from , just how they were.
too small to be seen, and too big to control, and treated like a walking bomb...
