I have a set of J10 dana 44s out of a 1979 J10. I have a 1974 CJ5 and I was wandering what I have to do to make them fit my Jeep with little to no money. I cann't get them cut, so I need a strong and cheap way to make them work.

Has anyone tried this before? If so some of you knowledge would be very helpful.

Any pics would be cool too.

Thanks
Eric

here's a post-76 CJ-5 with 304/T-18/Spicer 18 sprung over on '70s-era J-10 axles.

The front axles are outboarded from the frame, do a search and you'll find lots of info on it. You may want to do the same with your rears since your 74 doesn't flare out in the back, it may give you a little more stability. While you're at it, you might want to switch over to Wrangler springs to get the extra spring width.

Rock-Bottom Recommendations on How to put J-10 D44's on a CJ:

Rear - relocate spring perches

Front - outboard springs and make sure steering is clear

Searches on either of these procedures within this or other sites should prove bountiful.

If you don't have money to do it right, don't do it yet. Wait till you have the money. Trust me, you will be happier in the long run.
