    Hey, I need to get a new front driver side rotor. I was just wondering would any 10 bolt front axle work for the rotor and would a dana 44 rotor bolt right up?
    Just to let you know the axle is out of an 87-91 chev
    Thanks

    beligerence doesn't justify intelligence.

    Assuming we are talking about a 6 lug rotor, the hub and rotor are the same for the Dana 44 and the 10 bolt. There was a change in the spindle starting in 1977. GM went to a larger outer bearing. You can however still use the hub/rotor assembly from the earlier years as long as you change the outer bearing and race.

    Hey Steve, is your truck 8 lug? The Dana 44 and 10 bolt 8 lug stuff will interchange as well but not all years.
