I'm planning on searching for front axels for a SAS conversion....I know to get an 85 Toyota axel, but how can you tell the model year? Also, I know what a Dana is, but what vehicle did they come in for it to work on a Toyota front end? Just in case I can find one.

Thanks
Dwight

dana 44's came on all sorts of stuff, just look under american trucks for one with a diff cover shaped right, then decide if its a 60 or a 44, if you get a 60 and dont want it, lemme know, I'll take it, anyway its easy to spot, i found mine on a blazer, the main thing is to make sure the diff is on the pass side, chevy, or dodge, ford is on the wrong side. No matter what you do, it wont fit without some work

Thanks guys for the good info.....I'll see what I can find and go from there. I'm leaning towards Toyota because of the parts availability but I I like the Dana knuckles/joints better
Thanks Again,
Dwight

If you could get a dana that fits without chopping it up you'd have lots of parts available. For my tacoma swap the 1980+ wagoneer 44 fits perfect (about an inch skinnier than the rear). So I can buy u-joints anywhere and axle shafts from the junkyard (until they run out of wagoneers atleast).
