Yeah, I got into the same problem with my 35c on bearings and this thread helped me out in going with the 5707. As Polka said the 44a and 35c use the same bearings/seals. Even got into a cluster as seen below in finding an outer axle seal similar to the OE one. Ended up going with the Timken 8660S which seems to work fine.

I found after looking around ALL DAY the "national" 4857 wheel bearings seemed to have the best quality. I got them from O'Reilly's

I'm sure you mean 4857 axle seals. I like the lip on the front and as long as they don't have the big rubber piece on the back, like the Timken 4857 in the photo/link I posted, those should work.

Federal Mogul makes the National brands so they probably are good.

I have no idea what kind of weird Timken 4857 I bought from Autozone since the one in the below pic doesn't have a big closed-in rubber part on the back preventing it from going all the way in tight.

This was all I needed to read. All day long I been searching calling typing scratching my head. Thanks to all the posters on this thread. Great job.

Also....what is the capacity of the 44a so I know how much 75w140 to buy +/- the friction modifier?

Ive been through this with an xj that has the 8.25 rear axle. Took me forever to find the correct seal and bearing. Ended up getting the seal from mopar (dealership) and the Timken bearing from vatozone. After wasting hours researching it would've been much easier to go to the dealer get a mopar bearing and seal.

Would anyone happen to know the o.d. and other dimensions of both the seal and bearing so when im shopping I can be positive of what I am buying? And the capacity of the 44a?

The D44a takes the same exact bearing/seal as the D35 . It can confuse the parts guy because the look at the D44 which is different . Most places don't even list the D44a .

D44a takes approx 2.2-2.5 quarts to fill .
