    Yes if you plan on keeping the same lug pattern /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif One minor difference you need to check though is the stub shafts. Depending on what generation spindle the Dana 44 uses. If your Dana 44 is a 71-76 small bearing it uses a different stub shaft than the '77-87(91) Dana 44/10 bolt with the big bearing. You can simply put the stub shaft from the 10 bolt onto the Dana 44 inner axle shaft if you have to change stub shafts (not nessiary if the D44 is a big bearing axle already though).
