    After digging in to my D44 w/ 4.10's that I'm gonna swap in, I found the driver's side spindle is all stripped out... So my question is can I use one of the spindles off my front 10B in it's place? Also haven't looked but I'm assuming that the D44 and 10B knucles are the same so could always bolt 10B backing plates on the knuckles that were w/ the D44? Thanks for the help...if anyone knows of a decently priced spindle or has an extra I'd be interested.

    You can reuse the 10B spindle onto the D44 as long as they are the same thing. I mean by this, the first and second design spindles are different. If your D44 is 77 or newer, then the spindles exchange with the 10B easily.
