I am posting this for a friend in an effort to find out some answers for some questions he is having trouble finding. He is looking into buying a front Dana 44 out of a 74 K5 and was curious about the: spring perch width axle tube thickness worth of stock spindles (small bearing/flat tops) Length of axle shafts/what other axles out there could he use (buying chromos and curious about spares/what donor axles) Ease of swapping 10 bolt outer knuckles/brakes etc onto the axle Any other problems to be wary of this axle or is it good to go He has an 8lug 10 bolt to convert 44 to 8 lug depending on rear axle he is going to use. Both axles are complete and will be going in a light weight rig running 37-39's (chromos in front) so he will most likely convert to 8 lug. Anything else he should look into for this swap/building of the axle? I appreciate the help as I know he does. And he did search before asking me to post this. Thanks.
