What 44 do you have? Are you keeping your coils and shocks or are you going to something else? Just curious.Hey man, some of us can find hp30s for almost nothing and just swap over all our goodies when we grenade a R&P. I'm working on my 44 front, this is just an easy way of dealing with it :flipoff2:
If I have it my way, and usually I do when I build shit, I'll be swapping in the 44 at the same time as the stretch and won't have to move the buckets on the frame. Good stuff to know.
I don't have it yet but sourced a LP Ford 44 with .5" tubes. I'll be cutting it down to stock TJ width and using D30 outers to keep my investment in aftermarket shafts but still have the strength to do digs and bounce my front end a little bit.What 44 do you have?

The axle spring bucket is aft of centerline.
I just looked at mine to see about rotating the steering box more flat. If I rotate it on the most forward bolt to gain the most in lenth it will still require cutting into the sway bar tube and relocating the other two bolt holes. Seems to be alot of work as well. Is there an example of rotating the box thread that I cant find? Sorry I am new to the forum and the search is messing with my mind!
Yeah I saw that, I was just showing you can get 3" of stretch with the box in stock location. I like the cup-cut way of doing things though.The axle spring bucket is aft of centerline.
If you look at the link in my sig, picture 25 (I think) shows the spring cup cut off. It's not hard, and alot less difficult that cutting off the whole frame mount.
