will a front 44 from the front of a so equipped scout drop right into a scout with a dana 30?

I might need to get me a scout for a project...:D

It's as easy as unbolting one, and throwing the other in. Only thing you may wind up playing around with, is some of the brake hardware if the 30 had drums. If it had disks, then it's about a half an hour project.

True....the D30 should have drums....but I think the D44 soft brake lines will bolt up to the hard lines.

You also may want to snag a 1978-1980 (its a disc/drum) MC for a SII and you will need a disc/drum ppv....if best I remember.

I've had tons of brake issues with my SII so I know you will have to have these IIRC.....unless you are converting the rear to discs too...then the drum/drum M/C and ppv you have already will work great with four wheel discs.

The first time I took my truck off road I blew up the Dana 30 with 31 inch tires, I wasnt gunning it or even at a up hill slope, I swapped out the 30 for a 44, The disks are great and I can now run 33's without ever have to worry about breaking them, .................although with my luck my truck is probably on fire as I write this :D

Surely you jest.

I fragged two or three locking hubs, one Lockright, two axle shafts, broke the rear perches off the housing.. all with little 33s and a stock 304.

Now I run a built 345, wide box, and 36s on the same axles.. and amazingly, the carnage hasn't stopped. :D
