Dana 44 steering?? I tried searching

Hey guys I'm sorry if I missed something somewhere but I can't seem to find any info on steering hardware for my Dana 44. I'm doing a Dana 44 swap in to my 94 YJ. The axle is out of a 78 F250 and I have the outter nuckles from a 78 F150. I have had the axle cut down to waggy length. I will setting up the axle SUA. I'm looking to figure what tie rod, drag link and tie rod ends to use. I would also like to use the drop pitman arm that I already have. I have everthing I will need to do the swap except the steering hardware. Again sorry if I missed the post where it is spelled out for me to see it (I know someone will post it and make me look like a blind fool). Thanks for any info you guys could give me in advance.

You're not going to like using the stock pitman arm I'm guessing. For one, you're going high steer and SUA so you're not all that high and won't need a dropped pitman arm most likely. I have a waggy D44 in my YJ and I'm running the stock waggy pitman arm on 3.5 inches of lift SUA. It's workable until I go high steer. The biggest reason though is that D44 knuckles have longer steering arms than a D30 so you'll turn like a school bus without a longer pitman arm as well. You'll have to chop off the track bar mount at the frame but it's pretty easy. You could also match your D30 steering arm length with your high steer arms but I wouldn't suggest it. Longer arm= more leverage for turning your bigger tires.

Thanks for the info. Its looking like the 44 out of the F-250 isn't going to fit very well and the best way to go about it is to springover the front so that I can just run a highsteer setup. That way I won't have any issues with the axle housing getting in the way. I'm in talks with a couple of local (still 3 hours away) 4x4 shops. If anyone knows of any good shops in VA let me know.

that'd be the route i'd go. If your going through all that custom work with that axle, at least go Spring over. I just installed my high steer, highly recommend skys tall arms for clearence just in case (do it right the first time)
