    Oh I know that.
    My buddy has a Nissan xterra and he keeps telling me he already has a d44 in the front.

    The front? The fronts are Nissan design diffs the way I under stand it. 2nd gen is only 180mm ring gear. And the spiders are sintered metal not forged. They shred pretty regularly. I think the 1st gens actually had a larger ring but still not a Dana design.

    1997 G3500 width with 3.73:1 gears.

    But you probably don't want an extra-wide axle on your Xtra-narrow Datsun. ;)

    The rear axle is still on stands and the front is torn down to where I just have to pull the drive shaft, pull the CVs and unbolt the front diff.

    I would like to get both new diffs in the X today so that the rest of it is just reassembly from here on in. If I can stop finding little things wrong I want to deal with this will take a lot less time. The CV boots are in rough shape so that's got me wanting to replace all of them while the CVs are still good. Once I get them pulled we'll see how much of a job that will be.

    After supper this evening, I got the u-bolts back on, got the axle retainers and parking brake anchors torqued, the parking brake cables in place, the axle vent replaced with the nipple and hose hooked back up, both shackles reassembled and the driver's side shock back on.


    Another couple days like this and we'll be rolling again. I think tomorrow I can get the rear buttoned up. I was delayed by having to cut a few more brackets off the axle to clear the u-bolt flip setup.
