    I have searched and can not find if there is a difference between the inner shafts on a dodge 44 or a chevy 44. I know the 60's are different. I am not planning on running a dodge 44 but have one I am parting out.

    thanks, according to what is on the sight and the other I have found they look universal as far as shafts are concerned.

    Dodge D44's are NOT the same as Chevys..... I've learned this 1st hand.

    On some Dodges, the long side will interchange even though it's really off by ~-1/4" or so. But the short sides will not interchange...! It can be difficult to find replacement axles and ChroMo versions are only available as a "custom" axle from Currie or Moser.

    One other thing.... A Dodge D44 is not a Dodge D44...! I've had 2 Dodge disc brake D44's that had inner axle lengths that were not interchangeable!! :angry1: on either side...
