    I have seen somebody once put 44 ends on a dana rear end. He used the stock 44 axles and used the dana 60 30 spline carrier. He got tired of breaking ring gears and spider gears. All he did was move the weak link to the axles.

    thats just stupid...you still have a sf axle which is the biggest weak link... ive seen many a 10 bolt/ 44 shaft break before the ring and pinion and not to mention the rear tire 30 ft away:rolleyes:Btwe they were taking 44/ 60 fornt axles, not rear.

    ANyone know why someone would want to do this?would you be able to run 60 shafts inner and outer? the only thing i can think of is this allows for 5/6 bolt patterns (which you can find d60 hubs like that) with the ease of use floating brakes.

    I wasn't planning on buying them. I was just wondering if you could really put these D44 knuckles on a D60. I've personally never heard of it.
