    I have some spindles from a 77 d44. I think they are the large bearing. Do you have a picture of a small bearing one?

    From the trucks I've dealt with in the past, it seems to me that the small bearing spindles were used with the flat top knuckles up to '76, but there may have been some used in '77. The large bearing spindles seem to be found on the non-flat top knuckles.


    Here's a pic of the differences (pic borrowed from a ck5 member)...

    The small bearing spindle is on the left, the large on the right.

    The red arrow shows where the spindle gets bigger for the big bearing spindle.

    The blue arrow shows the small bearing surface on the left, and the large on the right.

    The yellow arrow shows where you can find the spindle part number. It will be on the thin edge of the spindle. You may need to wire brush them to see it, but it will be stamped somewhere along the edge.

    Right one has some pitting on the bearing surface, left one has some small amount of wear. IMO they would be fine for a a trialrig. Prob need some clean up for a driver.
    $50 shipped.

    I'll think about it and let you know... these are for a daily driver that gets about 140 highway miles a day, so I was wanting something fairly good.

    I called a local 4x4 (Jeep) shop and they said they could machine a pair of large bearing spindles down to small bearing spindles, so I may go this route.

    Are your spindles small bearing and in good condition?

    I need the small bearing spindles because I'm using Ford 5x5.5" hubs and rotors to match the 9" rear.

    Do you have the outter axle shafts for the spindles?
