just curious, i know where one has been sitting and can easily come home with me.
Ford or Dodge?? Don't think the Dodge ones are all that good, but the Fords are defintaly better. Downfall is the balljoints, not as strong as kingpins, and expensive to go crossover, havta buy a whole knuckle...If the price is right, get it.
ball joints will hold up if the rig is light and the tires are not too big. but under a fullsize i wouldnt want them.
biggest downfall is spring spacing(ford ones). They use the much wider 36.5" spring pad spacing. Means they are no where near a direct bolt in to a K5 or like frame rig, and when running big tires and low lift, expect tire rubbing on springs.
it is a chevy.. its from a K30 1 ton, but dosnt look like a 60, he thinks its a d44, i dont ?????
its looks like a 10b 8 lug from the holes in the rotor to me.
external hub 8 lug d44.
I also agree. Some where on the diff will be numbers cast into to diff, usualy on the webbing around the lower right hand side. It should have somthing like 44 6f for a dana44 and 60f for a 60. The first # is tha axle series and the letter "f" is for front.
Being external hub like that it would be a D44HD, INLESS someone swapped the HD stuff onto a 10 bolt.
Yeah thats a 10 bolt. If you did get a BJ 60 make sure its a 60 and not a 50.
