Scout 44 tube width and spring width

I can't find this in the archives, but offhand, does anyone know the tube diameter of the scout 44? (I think its 3" like the rest of em, but want to be sure) and what is the width of a cj rear spring??

Thanks

Re: Scout 44 tube width and spring width

CJ rear spring is 2 1/2" wide.

Scout 44 Tube dia. You need front or rear? And different years are slightly different dia on the rears.

I have a couple of each at the shop. If you let us know which one you need the measurement on,I can get it for you tomorrow.

Re: Scout 44 tube width and spring width

thanks for the fast reply. The scout axle is a rear 44, out of a '77 scout II. I was thinking that 44's were 44's across the board, but thought I better check before I buy new spring perches and get the wrong size....

Thanks again!

Re: Scout 44 tube width and spring width

I think they are all close enough to use the same perches.

FWIW I have several D44s on hand and they are slightly different, but all within about a 1/4". So the perches will pretty much be the same.

I have a 78 Scout rear at the shop should be the same as the 77. I will measure it tomorrow if you need exact.


Trivia: So far I have noticed that the older scout tubes are the thinest, then the newer scouts and Waggys are about the same, followed by the Ford D44s being the thickest. Not just in dia, but in tube wall thickness as well.

Re: Scout 44 tube width and spring width

I don't need to be dead nuts on, just wanted a diam. measurement to order with.

I am pretty sure its 3" but wanted to check. Within a 1/4 inch is plenty close to me. I should just make my own perches, but I havn't driven my jeep in so darn long I am just buying em to save that little bit of time fabbing em up. (plus im working lots of ot, so I have a little extra cash to spend, and no extra time to spend on the jeep)

Dana 44's use a 2-3/4" outer diameter tube. They vary in wall thickness but the outer diameter is the same.
