Got a D44 Front today....
I made it to the local Pull-n-Save today and brought home a '76 Waggy Dana 44 axle w/ flat top knuckles for $70 total. I'm going to put it in my CJ, full width and SOA.
I understand that I'm going to have to outboard the springs on the frame rails, as well as grind the crap out of the passenger spring perch. Does know of a link for SOA and full-width Waggy axles on a CJ? All the ones that I have found have been for YJ's, saw one Scout D44 w/o pictures, and one Waggy D44 for a CJ had cut the axle down and didn't outboard the springs. I guess I just want to see some close up pictures and measurements. 2 inches outboard?
Also, if I can find Scout D44 outer axle shafts, I can use my D30 discs & hubs, correct?
Thanks for the help,
1978 CJ-5 258 Weber, 'glass body, 6.32 low Ford/Scout T-19, 2.46 low Scout/Ford/Jeep Dana 20
