    Is the Dana 44 an internal or external locking hub type?

    Don't know, what is the difference? I may posibly be buying it, have not seen it yet. I blew my spider gears in my 10 bolt 2 days ago, 3 days after buying some warn premium hubs.

    You do realize that the dana 44 is 8 lug right? If you dont have a 14 FF or 8 lug 14 SF then you will have to either carry two spares or change rear axles. You can always just put new spider gears in your axle. You can get them from GM or a junkyard. The dana 44 and 10 are the samt strength because they use the same small u-joint.

    The internal hubs are the same 1/2 and 3/4. Some trucks came w/ external that are not the same.

    As for GM not having the spider gears you still have a few options:
    1) Buy some off of someone here
    2) Buy some from a wrecking yard
    3) Install a front Lock-Right locker (which I would not sugest doing because you will break even more parts)
    4) Don't use 4WD (BORING!)

    I don't think the locker necessarily makes you break more parts. It depends on how you wheel. An open diff can be the worst because a wheel gets to spinning, and then when it suddenly grabs....POW!

    I recommend the Lock Right.

    Right.

    <a target="_blank" href=http://www.gowarn.com/hub_chevy.htm>Warn Premium Hubs</a>
    Part number for the 69-91 Blazer is 20990
    Part number for 1/2 ton 69-87 pickup is 20990
    Part number for the 3/4 ton 77-87 pickup is 20990

    Those are the exact same parts numbers. If they don't fit why would they have the exact same parts numbers stating they do fit?

    I try to not have any wheel spin (unless in mud) mainly because I don't want to have to buy another set of tires any time soon. That makes for some tough driving w/ 2 open diffs.
