You should be able to find all the bearings at any bearing distributor, just get the numbers and take them with you. Does it have the big hubs? I have some big hub parts left, you probably wont be able to buy any parts for them

locally try 4 Wheelers Supply on Washington in phoenix, close to the airport. They carry full kits, as well as components.

If you have time to wait you can find online most anywhere. You will need the codes off of it to tell them what you need.

Like N_Rod said, pull it apart, get all the numbers from the bearings and seals, and go to the parts store. You shouldn't have any problems finding them.. If you need the spindle hardware, I think all the GM style D44 stuff is the same, as long as it has locking hubs (if your running locking hubs). If you need a hub or spindle, measure the inner bearing to see if it is the big or small bearing setup. Probably will have to be used for that stuff..

With flat top knuckles I bet it is a 1st design spindle/hub that uses the old large bolt on locking hubs which would mean small bearing. The part number for the spindle seals and bearings is BK1 just like every other D44/10B

I bought the bearings now i just have to press the old bearing races out of the hub, that 44 does have a bolt on style hub but is not a manual lock in style. took it a part and it seen the outer bearing has exploded, it all fell out as soon as i took the hub and rotor off.

I wonder what of caused it, would it just be better to replace the spindle as well, or just put new bearings and run it again, its the driver side

How dose the spindle look? Is it gawled up where the bearing may have spun on it?
