    I know the 3/4 Ton Corp 10 Bolts came in both 28 and 30 spline in some years.

    Does anyone know if the 30 spline 3/4 ton corp 10 bolt shafts will work in a 3/4 ton Dana 44?

    Thanks,

    Thomas.

    No they dont. The axles on the passenger side of the 10 bolts are longer that the dana 44, and on the drivers side the 10 bolts are shorter than the dana 44. I think its pretty close to an inch on each side. Hope this helps

    No. The spline cut angle is different and the carrier bearing rides in different places on the shafts between the two.

    Damn Thomas, I thought you were getting an 8 lug 44. My bad. I may know of a guy that has some 44 shafts, I see if I can find him.

    Hey Kyle,

    Yea, I thought at first it was going to be a D44, but it turns out it's a corp 10 bolt. I got it for $200, so I plan on stripping the parts I need and then try to sell whats left over for whatever I can get.

    If you know someone, that would be great! Lemme know how much VIA email, and we'll see what happens.

    Thanks!

    Thomas.
