    Re: Axle Woes

    You can go up to 35" tire without too much wory.

    There are many weak areas on a D44/10Bolt.
    1) Small u-joints (and when they go they take out other stuff with them)
    2) Small axle shafts
    3) Small bolts that hold the spindle on
    4) Balljoints
    5) Stock carrier
    6) R&P

    Axle shafts, carriers, and R&P can be broken and you could still get home in 2wd...
    IMO it is the spindle and balljoints that make the D44 a problem with bigger tires.
