Dana 44 fronts and compatibility.
So heres the deal.
I own a Scout 44 front. It matches my scout 44 rear.
Someone has offered me a D44 front for my old crank and rods from my 4.2L.
He claims its a LOW PINION D44 front, from a FORD.
That sounds odd to me because I thought Fords were all H/P.
Now the big question.
What is compatible? I was hoping to get flat-top knuckles out of it, and then I realised I could get the 44 gears (4.10s) carrier, shafts, knuckles and hubs.
Will any of this stuff convert over?
The idea is to get the flat tops, run hi-steer, and hold the gear set incase I get a smoking deal on a set of rears, then I can have them installed instead of my 3.54s
I know stuff like shafts, and what not wont match, but I have a friend with a EB D44 front housing, who is looking for all the chevy parts to go in there because the only thing that doesn't match up between the two is the short side inner.
Maybe this guy just has his axle upside down?
