Re: axle /keep or swap out???
you know I have running wih my amc 20 and dana 30 for 4 years now with 35's. I'll tell you what I learned. The 30 sucks! Period, don't waste your money trying to keep it together. I wasted 500 big ones regearing it to match my 20, I shouldn't have. In the 20, I put 4.88's, warn full floater, welded the tubes, and put in a lock right. I havn't managed o break it since doing the upgrades. I just snagged a scout II this weekedn for the 44's and in all reality, I would have settled for just a front 44, and kept my 20 (which is by no stretch of the imagination bombproof, but now somewhat durable) but I got the whole scout, and this way the axles match width and gears and everything else, so I will swap both.
As for gears, with an auto, could be either 3.07 or 3.54 I have heard both, mine is an auto and I will be getting it next week, I will let you know what it has.
My opinion, get the 44's if you got a deal on them, the 30 will suck more of your money that you can believe!
