    Guys, I have a D44 sourced from a 74 1/2 ton pu I'm going to rebuild for my 87 1/2 ton pu. The hubs and spindles and axles are shot. I plan on putting a cross over steering system on since I have a flat top passenger knuckle. My question is will the spindles/backing plates/hub & rotors from a 10 bolt axle fit on the D44? Will the D44 stub shafts work with 10 bolt locking hubs? I only ask since I just spent a butt load redoing the above mentioned parts on the 10 bolt and wish I could have put money toward the D44. Any help wouild be great.

    Everything from the knuckles out will interchange between D44 and 10 bolt. The stub shafts are the same also unless you have the early stub shafts that use the small U-joint.
