    what year did the u jount size for the axel shafts of the d44 change I have a 73-newer d44. does that have the larger u joints? I don't know exactly what year it came out of, but it's 73-75 frame. It also has the flat top knuckle

    your right. I don't understand the jeep thing!

    yeah a d44 goes right in... You can interchange parts from a 10B front and a D44 front from the knucles out... I plan to use 10B backing plates and calipers, along with the spindles of my 10B
