Question Swap for front Axel


What & where should I be looking for a swap to upgrade my front D30?
I know about the Isuzu and Ford swaps for the rear, but need to understand what's available for the front.

Thanks in advance

Unless you plan on going really hardcore, I'd just upgrade the D30. You can get bigger axleshafts and bigger u-joints for it, for less than the cost of a swap. These mods will put the D30 in the strength range of a D44. It's the D35, in the rear, that needs more help than it's worth.
