    I know, I know......There were some here about 2 weeks ago, but missed my chance.

    Does anyone have either the 8-Lug Conversion parts, or and entire 8-Lug D44 that they would be willing to strip parts from? I am located in San Jose, CA so the closer the better.....

    Thanks! [​IMG]

    I have a set, they are the older big hub style. If interested, make me an offer.

    Mr. Chevy,

    Sorry to sound like a dumba$$ but what is the "big hub style"? Will that make a difference in the other parts I'll need to buy? (Rotors, bearings, etc?) What year truck did these come off? Will they still bolt on, or is there some additional machining step necessary?

    I don't really have all the vocabulary to ask this followup question, so please bear with me! [​IMG]

    I think he means the ones with the external hubs. They will work but you won't be able to use your old hubs.

    They are the early style(early to mid 70's) that have the external bolt on hubs. I personally like the way they look bigger and stronger, but in reality they aren't any stronger than the later small hub style. They are a direct bolt on just like the newer style, but you will have to have a set of the external hubs. Let me know if you are interested.
    Thanks,
    Mike

    Greg, I got a set from a 1978 3/4 ton Dana 44. $200 minus locking hubs, or $250 with brand new locking hubs. Let me know. Oh, BTW, I am in Anaheim, CA.
