    You need half ton hubs...they are the same as the 3/4 ton hubs. All that's different up front is the 8 lug pattern.

    if it is internal style hubs on the D44 then it is the 1/2 ton hubs. 1/2 &amp; 3/4 internal hubs are the same. I'm 99% on that.

    My Chevy isn't broken, its just out of gas.

    no they are pretty straight forward, except for the outer snap ring that holds the inner hub in. Just got to find that and get it out. the rest is easy.

    Some of the older 3/4 ton dana 44s came with external hubs. They have six bolts holding them onto the hub. Look at my pics and you can see that I have external hubs.
