    Depends on the gearing....4.10's will get you about $300-$400 for the pair where if they are 3.08's....not much.

    i paid $300 for a 44/14b combo ('76). d44 had the weak external hubs, but had flat top knuckles.

    The external hubs are NOT weak, people just don't know how to keep the bolts from backing out. Don't use bolts to hold the hubs on, use a stud kit with pinch nuts and never have a problem with them.
