You can make the springs work, waggy are wider you would have to live with that

No.

Have you looked at the top of the Suzuki Tech area??? There is a D44 FAQ up there.

you can make it work. The axles will be wide, but that's cool as long as there aren't legal issues. You can get yokes that bolt to your t-case flanges so that you can use shortened wagoneer d-shafts rather than some crazy custom ones. You gain bigger u-joints in the deal as well, and it's not very expensive.

good luck

I got some adapters from Rockrat and I am using the large Toyota flange. Much bigger u-joint than Sami and holds up to mucho abuse. At the diff side I am just using the 1310. The bolt on flange is a killer idea. If I had know of them I might have gone that route, but I would not have gotten the chance to meet Scott.

No .
The passenger side spring lines up right on the edge of the diff.You must outboard the springs .It isn't to big of a deal to do .
