Dana 44 axle shafts?

Are Waggie Dana 44 axle shafts (80'-?) the same length and diameter of earlier passagenger side drop axles? To word it better, are they interchangeable? I have a 79' axle and would like to find some spare shafts.

Re: Dana 44 axle shafts?

If you mean...
Can I take a set of shafts from a later modle Waggie, and switch them to run in my Pre 80 waggie D44 front...
No I don't think you can. I think that if your 79 D44 has disk breaks, (it should) then the outers are the same. But the inner long, and short, can not be used.
I have a 79 D44 in the front of my jeep as well. I do have a full set of spare parts. What I did was to keep my eyes on some clasified pages, and waited for someone to be parting out an older Wag.
It is always good to have extra axle parts.

I believe that if you are looking for some aftermarket parts you could take a look at BJ's.
I don't have that address handy, but I am sure someone will post it up for you.

Well I thought that might be the case. Nothing ever is that easy. Guess the search continues.
