    Since no one else will....
    1rst gen d44 shafts are different than the 2nd gen shafts-seals-ujoints.
    The seals are different as they seal differently and the u-joints are smaller.
    Goto the pick a part on 35th or 43rd ave south of van buren? Its been 4years since i have been there since we moved to colorado. Find a 73 -76ish gm 4wd with a d44 and rob the shafts out of it....then strip the backing plates - spindles - hubs - etc. and upgrade your d44 to the better sealing late model hubs....plus you get bigger u-joints. you might also see randy at driven auto and see how much he wants for the complete setup.
