D44 Rebuild and Install Project

Thought I would start this thread and take advantage of the project log section

I have my D44 just about stripped and figuring out the parts needed to get it back in shape.

Some parts were trashed more then I thought. I opened the diff cover and it was full of water. yum.
The Spindle was trashed as well, all the bearings are junk too.
The outer axle shafts the splines are messed up.

Any input is welcome :)

I was directed to www.broncograveyard.com for parts and I think I found some good deals.

12212 76-77 Outer Rebuild Kit .................................................. .......$525.00 $525.00
22054 D44 Inner Axle Shaft Seal, Each 1978-79 Bronco ..........................$7.00 $14.00
22056 D44 Axle Shaft U-Joint, Spicer .................................................. .....$25.00 $50.00
22112 Dana 44 Overhaul Kit, TIMKEN BEARINGS!!! ....................................$85.00 $85.00
22122 D44 1310 Series Pinion Flange, 3.5" .............................................$35.0 0 $35.00
22152 Spindle Stud, Each .................................................. ............................$4.00 $40.00
22497 Driveshaft U-Clamps, 3 7/8" Pair .................................................. ...........$5.00 $5.00
22028 OEM D44 Outer Axle .................................................. .....................$42.00 $84.00
22062E D44 Precision Reverse Rotation 4.88 ratio ....................................$129.00 $129.00

22082 D44 Carrier, Open 3.93 and Up Complete.................$105.00 $105.00


Calipers Right/Left 35$ each loaded (Napa)

Aussie Locker (Not sure about carrier) Is the carrier part of the locker?

RE9968 RE TJ AXLE BRACKET KIT FRONT.................................................. ...$402.95


I need a welder before I can really start this project 100% so I am saving for that right now. After that the project wont take long to complete.

You need an open diff carrier for the Aussie locker. and remember there is a carrier break for that axle. So you need to the right carrier for your gears.

did you already buy all that stuff? those spindle stud prices are really high.

Check to make sure yours are 3/8" but here is a much cheaper price. I buy alot of stuff from parts mike. My knuckles (Ball joints, highsteer arms, highsteer studs, spindle studs,flattop machining) and steering is all from him.

You can just get thick cut gears, I did for a low pinion 44. I guess if you need a new carrier you might as well buy the right one.

is there some type of funky ring in the upper balljoint hole on the inner c? seems to be something funny in there, but maybe it is machined in the C?
