Steering knuckles are held onto to inner c's by balljoints.
U joint's are universal joints that are in between the long shaft inside the axle tube, and the outer axle shaft.

Also, in your opinion, what are "U-Joints” ?
U-Joints to me are the flexible links in the driveshaft and have nothinig to do with the Knuckles on the Axle Tubes.
ltr
The U stands for universal.
it looks like this

Oh,oh,oh I was confused. I thought the knuckles were held on by U-joints as well as the U-joints in the driveshaft.

Thats why I asked. I was misinformed from a TRS thing I read.

You could just ask a moderator to clean it up a bit. Not that much of what was posted was all that far off topic. Good job being an *** for no reason.

I understand where he is coming from, it happens all the time and my posts may have been part of the problem too, that is not directly related to his build, and if so I am sorry for the corruption of the post…

I never did get the D44 measurements ?

58 inches for the EB D44. That's from the TRS article. As a comparison the D30 from Cherokees is 63 inches.

Chill dude. Actually the thread is fairly on topic. The whole last page (3) was talking about D44 u-joints and ball joints. Honest build questions.

Just got this back from James Duff, for all you 2001-2003 Rangers and maybe the 98 - 2000 too.

From JD:
"We break it down to 83 97 is gen 1 2 and 3,98 to 01 is gen 4 and your 03 would be gen 5,sorry about that. But we will get into it sometime,keep watching.”

So there maybe a kit for my 2003 before long, just when is another story...

The best thing to do is find a late 70s D44 from an F250 and have it narrowed to EB size. Plus it already has disks and the larger u-joints. They are relatively easy to find. I thought about doing that for a second when I got a 78 F250 at my local Pull-A-Part, but I realized that if I bought the axle it would sit behind my shed for another decade.

Every thread on this sight has someone bad mouthing someones build ( I hope your fab skills are better than your spelling) Go back and check other threads. I thought ( My fault for thinking) this would be a good place to post a build I apologize for the comment earlier. I have checked back just to see what was going on yup still talking ****.

you are on a forum.. where people come to learn about stuff. Maybe he didnt know, but now he does. I dont understand how that ruined your build thread.

Maybe you should just stay off this site if it bothers you that much.

Some people are retarded, thats why they are on a forum to learn from people that know. Cool build, sorry that this thread went sideways. Have a mod get rid of the non related stuff and continue on.

Just go suck a shotgun.

The dude didn't know the difference b/t a b-joint and a u-joint. Did you come out of the womb knowing these things or something? You gotta ask sometime. Your the first douche I've ever had a prob with on this site and I been here a little while, so I think it is a little better that you decided your too cool for r-f.

Where's D. when you need him...
