    In the local trading post i found a dana 44 and a 14 bolt full floater with 4.10 out of a 70's model 3/4 ton hints dana 44 for 350 are they worth this or are they worth passing up.

    Thanks

    If your already "thinking" your going 37's or 38's, that means you WILL go 37's or 38's! Trust me, Once you get the disease, there's NO CURE!! do yourself a favor and grab them if you can. Do you know Exactly what year? look at the passenger side knuckle, see if it has a "flat top knuckle", That will be a plus if you ever plan steering upgrades. 75 and earlier will have that.

    I havent seen the axels the guy said they where out of a 70s 3/4 ton pickup. Is there a chance it would be a sf instead of a ff i dont wont to persue it if theres a chance. Also will a flat top knukle work with my stock steering. I dont wont to spend a bunch of money on the side.

    Thanks

    If its 70's its a 14FF. Flat top knuckles have the same steering as yours( drag link on the driver side) Flat top knuckes are what is needed to do crossover steering, if you ever decide to go that way.

    4.10 is a good place to start. With 35's you will be just right for playin and using it as DD. I say grab them axles now, rebuild your motor when it quits runnin.

    The flat top knuckle will work with your stock steering. The reason he brought up the flat top knuckle is because you will need it if you want to go with crossover steering later on. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif Here is ORD's stuff for crossover. You can read up on it here at ORD. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    I cant wait much longer for the engine rebuild is i go through a gallon of antifreeze in less then 500 miles and 1 quart of oil every 500 to 1000 and i already have 4 10 in my blazer all i will get out of it is strength.

    Thanks

    When you go to install these, allow plenty of time. If you are running 15" wheels, some amount of caliper grinding will be necessary. While not difficult, it is time consuming. Other than that, pretty much a straight forward swap. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif
