Good luck! Trunnion pins, bearings, shims and seals are far and few between . . . especially the shims used to set the knuckle preload. Ford used the same hokey setup on the EB Dana 30, early F100 HP Dana 44 and F250 Dana 44 axles.

I know there's someone out there with a bunch of stashed NOS parts but the bastid is in deep hiding. It would probably be easier to swap in a ball joint axle.

Bronco graveyard, quad 4x4, and somebody else on this site all sell kingpin 44 parts. Its not that hard to buy parts for them, hell the last time I bought the shims it was at Napa.

Can you do high steer on this axle like the 60? From the looks it is doable would have to machine arm rear bolts depth of 1 2/8th inch front 2 are studs strong enough????

Send a message via Yahoo to ryansbronco
The bronco vendors may get them directly from
six states distributors
http://www.sixstates.com/products/products.jsp
I tend to get most of my axle and shaft parts from them
They will ship if your not near a depot
