    I've gleaned all I can from your website (which is AWESOME btw!) but I still have a couple questions if you can help. I'm using '77 Cherokee Chief housing (narrowed on the long side) knuckles, '75 K10 spindles and '83 F150 TTB hubs/rotors under an '85 CJ7. I'm going to send my shaft to moser after I figure out how to take and what my measurement is. My question comes up about which stub shaft to use. It looks like on your website that the Chevy and Ford stubs have different measurements. Wouldn't that affect the ability of the hub to fasten down? I have the stubs from the F150 and the Chevy so if you could advise me on which one to use I would GREATLY appreciate it! I want to make sure I'm doing this thing right when I go to put new u joints in the shafts. Thanks is advance!

    Hey, I've come across a kingpin 60 from a 76 f250 and was wondering if you knew where I could find replacement parts or if there are any other shafts that will work in that axle? Also, can it be converted to use the bigger axle shafts? Thanks

    Hello Mr.N, I saw your page on 79 F350 D60 and was wondering if you could help me to identify my axles which are supposedly off of a 79 F350. Could I post a pic and send you a link? you rock

    hello, i'm new to posting on forums so i hope this is the right way. i'm converting a 1975 bronco drum dana 44 to disc. i have a 1971 chevy spindle but i'm trying to find out if i need to buy new hubs or if the ones i have will work..the hubs are the one's that were used on the original drum setup (75 bronco). summary are drum hubs interchange to press rotors on. i even confused myself but maybe it'll make since. thanks for any help

    Mr. N, Love your website and applaude your moral stand! My question is regarding recommendations for machining of D44 knuckles. Who are you recommending for this service these days other than Parts Mike. I live in Ohio. Any help will be greatly appreciated. Jim

    Mr.N, a while ago you commented on a thread asking if anyone had heard of a reverse tapered stud for a heim joint tie rod conversion that would place the heim on top of a knuckle. /forum/general-4x4-discussion/901559-feeler-our-taper-stud-adapters.html Did you ever find such a stud? I would really be interested in one if they exist.

    Will the 5:38 ring and pinion gears out of my 1951 rear dana 44 bolt up to the carrier/housing of a newer 70's/80's rear 44. What about in a low pinion front 44?

    Hello Mr.N - I noticed you know a lot about Dana axles. I have a 1973 250 with a low pinion closed knucke drum brake HD44. I'd like to have disc brakes. My question is: Can I go the knuckles out Chevy Brakes route? If so what do I need to look for at salvage yards. If not do I need to find a low pinion open knuckle disc axle off another f250. Thanks!

    Ok I've been reading your dana articals all day...

    I have a '75 F150 Dana 44 axle with drum brakes, my question is can the outter knuckle be swapped out for a '76-'77 to gain disc brakes? if so what all will be needed?

    The shafts according to your page seem to be the same length, obviously knuckle, the hub/bearing, & braking hardware... what else am I missing? please school me on this.


    BTW your PM box is also crammed with our dumb questions haha

    Mr.N, your Dana 44 flat top web site has greatly helped me get my hp44 project going. My question is about spindles and stubs. With whatever spindle I end up running, do I have to use the stub that came with it? I have a set of flat tops, machined and ready to go. Here's my plan, get 77-87 GM big bearing splindles and machine them down to small bearing specs, 77-87 GM stub shaft, 77-87 GM brakes, 87-95 Ford hub, bearings and rotor. My question is about the Ford 6 bolt spindle that is on the TTB, will that work with my chevy flat tops or should I stick with the original plan?

    Thank you for any help,
