My uncle has a 77' Ramcharger( i know, wrong truck) with a 44 front axle and full time 203. he asked me if i could help with finding out some info and you guys know more than anyone. first off, hes got a crappy fulltime spindle/hub design with old style bearings.anyone familiar with what im talking about? where the axle is splined directly into the hub? anyhow, hes spun both hubs and now has spun the spindle(races flop around). he is going to go to junkyards looking for a replacement, i suggested he may be able to swap parts from a newer axle and get a better quality design. are the spindles interchangable between the years? he needs to upgrade to a part time system aswell to save the frontend and tires. i was thinking he could swap something off a newer 44 with locking hubs and cone bearings.or maybe 10bolt stuff if it swaps over. whatever will work and improve on his current setup. what will work and what wont?ideally it would be something easily found at a junkyard. he also needs to do a part-time conversion for the transfercase. where can he get one, how much and what whats included in it for the front end. new hubs? ? can anyone shed some light on the subject? thanks!
