quick Waggy 44 question

I need the distance from front spring perch to the other front spring perch on a 79 waggy narrow dana 44, I guess the distance between each stud that goes into the leaf spring might be a better way to measure. Either way I just need a distance to mark some points on my CJ frame.

thsnks very much

I don't have the numbers in front of me, but You outboard your springs two inches on each side. My guess is that the pin is 32" - that is four inches wider than a dana 30 on a CJ.

Re: quick Waggy 44 question

I want to say 32" but somebody better confirm that....

I went the scout axle route on mine, so I can't remember all the perch to perch numbers off hand...

EDIT tippy beat me to it...

What ever the CJ is add 4 inches. At least that is what i remember. Im 99% sure i cut 4inches off of my waggy axle to fit it under the CJ.

Just to confirm - I measured a waggy 44 that is laying here.
Those who said 32" are correct.
