    My buddy has got a D44 8lug front, with drum brakes, open knuckle in the front of his Ford. The spindle and outer hub assembly are pretty much fubar on the passenger side. Does anybody know where in the hell we could get one at. I told him it is kind of hard to find parts for an axle that is older than Moses. Thanks for the help

    I found a closed knucle one Saturday when I was out wheeling behind my house. the hub looks liek it might be OK, but I am not sure about the spindle I would have to go an take another look. PM me if I need to go and look at it. I will round up a digi cam and take some pictures.
