    Does anyone know if any brake parts are interchangable from d44s and 10 bolts.

    From what I understand, all the brake parts will interchange.

    I think there is a slight difference in the banjo fitting for the brake lines.

    Aside from the fittings at the caliper to brake hose being different, all else will interchange.

    Rotors are the same. Calipers on a 10B have smaller banjo bolts than a D44. They all use the same pads.

    I am going to swap the 8 lug outers off a D44 onto my 10bolt, and question is will my calipers off the 10 bolt fit the d44? If not how can I change the fittings on my brake lines to fit a D44 caliper?

    My Chevy isn't broken, its just out of gas.

    You can just use your 10B calipers w/ the rest of the D44 8 lug stuff.

    hossbaby50, your 10 bolt calipers will fit the d44, you must use the caliper bracket from the 8 lug rotor though. rotors on the 8 lug are larger than the 6 lugs so that makes the bracket different.

    Sweet, thats what I was hoping to hear. Now I won't need to figure out how to make the 10 bolt break lines fit the D44 Caliper. Thank you all for your help.
