    Might be a stupid question.. But are the axles interchangeable between the 30 spline 10 bolt and a Dana 44. Thanks

    nope sorry /forums/images/graemlins/frown.gif. The front stub shafts are the same though /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif. Rear 30 spline 10 bolt axles and 12 bolt shafts are interchangeable (well kinda, 12 bolts will go in 10 with minor grinding/filing near c-clip, but 10 will not go in 12)

    while we got into 10 and 12 bolt discussion who knows which- if either- shafts have more material around the C clip area and also neck down less ? i havent really looked at any 10 bolt shafts ever really, i know 12 bolt shafts pretty well though ive pulled alot of them.

    Here is some good info from Wes that I keep saved:
    "D44 and 10B axle shafts are not interchangable. The D44 shafts measure: right - 36.13"
    left - 18.31"
    10B shafts measure: right - 35.46"
    left - 19.15"
