    just bolted my dana 44 in the front of my truck the other night,and was just wondering if i can use the calipers from my 10 bolt,or do i need calipers for the 44.
    The calipers bolt up to the backing plate,but i have nothing else installed yet.Rebuilding everything first.
    Any help would be great
    thanks

    You might have to grind off a bit of the caliper on the bottom side of it. I had to do this to get my 10 bolt calipers to fit my D44.
