Difference in outer axles 44 and 10 bolt.

I am thinking about purchasing some warn or other brand of way too exspensive axle shafts for my front axle. The problem is it is a dana 44 that was drum braked and I used a 10 bolt from the knuckle out to convert it to disc and to get 6 lug (was 8 lug). What is the major difference between 10 bolt and dana 44 outers? If they are different spline can't I just use the dana 44 locking hub? I really would like to simplify the situation without swaping in another 44 and having to retweak my steering and redo the brakes, bearings and all that crap..... Also if anyone knows who has a good price on the warns or another lifetime brand of axle please let me know.

My bad should have checked warn's site. They are the same... It is the scout ones that have more splines (27-30) chevy used 19 spline up to the IFS years. I knew something was different on dana 44's between models.
