So i put my 10 bolt all together and was changing over my locking hubs in anticipation of slapping it in today, so I put one in and its fine, go to slap the other one on and couldn't get the snap ring on, so I took my locking hub off to take a look, the "seat" for the snap ring is about 3/4" farther in than my dana 44 on the truck now, or the other stub shaft. The guy I bought this off said that he couldn't find one axle shaft so he grabbed one from a dana 44, from everything I read the dana 44 and 10bolt are the same from the knuckles out so what the hell is going on? I guess I have to take my dana 44 apart and steal that stub shaft so I can get my 10bolt ready to slap in problem free. What is this stub shaft for? They are both 28 spline and exact same length just the snap ring seat it farther back on the shaft on the one.
