Where can I get dana 44 perches?

I'm halfway through my axle swap and need to order some dana 44 spring perches. Where can I get them? I couldn't find them on quadratec or 4wd hardware.

Thanks,
Pablo

My local 4x4 shop has them on the shelf but I know that I have seen them on Rubiconexpress.com, etc. If your doing spring over, they say the longer ones are better but I have no experience with them.

I just cut my old ones off and reused them. But call a trailer manufacturer, horse, car or whatever. Tell them the tube diamiter and spring width. They should be able to get you the right size.

You can also try here.

Warrior Products in Tualatin, OR has some. I used them on my D44 swap.

I got my last set from
DC 4wd
I think they are Rubicon Express, but I got them from him for less than I could buy them direct.

Price was good and they fit great.
Even got the ones with the offset for the front axle pumpkin side. Can get you the P/N's if you need it.

Re: Where can I get dana 44 perches?

I actually got mine from a Dodge dealer. If I remember right, Mepco wanted around $25.00 and MORE wanted over $40.00 (if I remember right). I got a pair at the dealer for LESS THAN $10.00. I can't remember the part number, but they worked fine - they only reason I had to get them was to change the angle for driveline angle.

Try your local speed shop. Mine has them for $15 a pair.

You need a welder to put the perches on the axel. Use it to make the perches. They're nothing some pieces of plate.

Re: Where can I get dana 44 perches?

Alright, I've found u-bolts, i still need perches & spring plates - seeing as how the spring plate is nothing but a 1/4" piece of metal with 4 holes drilled in it, is there some reason why i shouldn't make my own? just curious...
