I have to replace the housing on my d-44, and it's 19-spline. I already have the locker, etc, can I put my 19-spline shafts in a housing made for 30-spline ones? I know it would be an easy time to upgrade, but I aint got the cash. Thanks
Just make sure that the flange pattern is the same (Where the brakes bolt on) Older D44's use an evenly spaced 6 bolt pattern, and the newer ones have a flat bottom with the bolts non-evenly spaced. You will also need to re-use the seals from the 19 spline, the 30 spline setup is a 1 piece axle and uses a retaining plate and different type of seal.
