    I would like to know if you can identify what these Dana44s came from and year. I want to put one in my '69 K5 and I think/hope these are Chevy and will bolt right up.


    Let's see if I can make these pictures show up...

    EDITED: I guess I can't get them to show. Please cut'n'paste into you're browser.

    They all look like Chevy's except for the closest one with the different lockouts. Those lockouts make me want to say it's a Dodge, but I am not 100% sure. Unless they're just an odd hub like "selectro's"....

    Those are "selectro's" . I have seen these on open knuckle 1970 drum Dana 44's . There is one sitting next to my friends house . I have never seen some on a disc brake axle Chevy axle though , although I am sure they exist . I have seen them on a late 70's Scout however /forums/images/graemlins/k5.gif /forums/images/graemlins/k5.gif

    I have those "select-pro" hubs on my 78 k5 D44.

    I'm not positive, but I'm pretty sure that it is the origional axle. It has disk brakes also.

    Hmm, the tie Rod ends mount on top of steering arm which means flat top knuckles, so the axles are pre 1977. Another way to tell the pre 1977 axles is the steering stabilizer mounting bracket is by knuckle on the axle, or no bracket at all for pre 1973 axle. The stabilizer mounts in the middle of tierod.

    Thanks for the info guys..

    as far as the statement about the steering stabilizer mounts, and the no-bracket, does that mean the the closer one is a pre-73 (or 71, 72 since it has disks)? /forums/images/graemlins/confused.gif
