Those babies were D44's front and rear, open knuckle 30 spline inners (I think) and the front drop is on the passangers side.
And agian I am not 100% sure, but I think that the front would have disks, and flat tops. Good axels... Probably 3.07 R&P

79 was the last year of the quadratrac so make sure it has a dana 20 if you want to use the rear axle. The quadratrac is offset a few more inches.
