    I might have a chance to get these to at a pretty good price, maybe even free. My dad's friend has kind of a salvage yard of Chevy's and he has all kinds of axles and stuff. He never ever sells anything, but he has just given it away. He keeps it and rebuilds the stuff then puts it on his other trucks and stuff. The question is, would I have to get a bunch of new U-bolts for these bigger axles?? I have the 10bolts now and hopefully if I get the chance to upgrade. Thanks

    I am probably the wrong person to answer this question because I would also like to know the answer to this.

    I believe the outer axle diameter of the 10's 12's and 44's are all the same.Don't qoute me but i believe they are all 3" IN DIAMETER.So all u-bolt hardware should work.

    the 44 will bolt in place of the 10 in front! The axels use the same part at the wheel different centers! And yes the 10s and the 12 use 3 inch u-bolts, I would still get new U-bolts there cheap like 10.00 each!
