    I\'m bummed!...D44 Blown

    Was pretty excited when I checked out my 3/4 ton swap and saw I was getting a D44. Price was right so I dint look at the truck too much before I bought it. Cleaned up the front axle today pulled the cover and found the cross shaft in 2 pieces and the spider gears laying in the bottom of the pumpkin. So....I guess now I will have to pull the shafts and see if they got ate up when the spiders moved around. At a minimum I will need a rebuild, carrier and gears. I still have my 10 bolt so I guess I could swap the knuckes off the 44....then I would only have to change gears.....ho humm.......

    Just replace the carrier with a Detroit.
