The Front Axle is a D44 out of a 79 F250 the the 8 lug version



Some info on the axle.

In 1977.5 Ford’s new F-250 axle now started to appear. This new axle was a high pinion, reverse cut, 8-lug Dana 44. This axle for the F-250 Dana 44 is slightly different than the F-100 & F-150 offered in 1977. The F-250 is a little wider than the F-100 & F-150, for the wider 8 bolt wheel pattern. The F-250 also has 3-inch wide axle tubes with 1/2-inch thick tube walls, and the axle has many different small changes from the F-100 & F-150 to include larger brakes.

Sure can, but I wanna say the 44 I have out of the F250 is slightly wider. Should be that noticeable. Which measurements do you want?

It has been stretched since the stock axles




Still have some more room to stuff, but need to do some grinding on some brackets to enable it to MAXIMUM SEXYNESS!

That's right you mentioned that. I think you should do some chevy springs so I can see how you do it I can't really find anyone using the kit I have besides yota guys and couple xjs but bad pics. Where did you get those axles for that price? I'm really really thinking about tons ha
