    I want to get the steering arm and a spacer (using 0 rates) for crossover, also a straight draglink with TREs.
    And 8-lug hubs, rotors, backing plates, spindels.

    All this for a '72 Dana 44. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    There were a couple of 8 lug front axles for sale in NorCal. I will be down there this weekend and could pick one up for you if you had a deal worked out on one. At least get it closer and within a days drive.

    Just saw an ad on www.colorado4x4.org for someone selling all the parts to convert a 6-lug 44 to an 8-lug for $100. Ya might want to check on that. /forums/images/graemlins/cool.gif

    Spindles are the same as what you already have unless you go to the newer style "big bearing" model.

    Check with Leadfoot067... I think it was him that just blew up an 8 lug D44 gears. If he goes and gets a D60 like he was thinking about he would probably part out the D44.
