    10 bolt to D44 knuckles out will swap. I don't think anything will swap between 10 and 12 bolt rear.

    On the 10 bolt rear to 12 bolt rear the things I know for a fact will swap is the backing plates , brakes , u-bolts , drums , and the hardlines for the brakes . Did this when swapping out the 10 bolt Dead-loc axle for a 12 bolt . None of the internals will interchange since the pinion/cross shaft diameter is different . I never checked the bearings and seals to see if they were the same , I think they are same inner size for the axles at least for 30 splined axles , because 30 spline 10 bolt shafts worked temporarily with a little weld on each end to make them wider , until I scored `12 bolt shafts ( got a 5 lug 12 bolt to work with ) /forums/images/graemlins/k5.gif

    10 bolt fronts and d44 fronts are pretty much identical with respect to strength... why swap a 44 in for a 10?

    Don't need to go 3/4, and cheaper than having re-geared.
