Dana 44 hub conversion

I need to start tearing down my Dana 44's from my 88 Grand Wagoneer soon. Right now, the front has automatic hubs. I want to put the manual locking hubs in in. My question is should I buy a new kit for the hub conversion, or should I try to get the parts off another 44? What should I get to do the conversion also?


88 YJ...kinda. Clayton Hard Arms, V8, 1 tons running gear, twin sticked, Irok's, fuel cell, multi-colored

Both Warn and Milemarker make manual hubs for that axle but I'd go for the Warn brand. I did a conversion on my TJ to Warn manual hubs and it wasn't difficult. If you have tools and aren't afraid to get greasy, you could probably do the conversion without much problem. Their kits include excellent instructions.

When you have a choice, buy American.

You can do either. Junk yard a ford set or buy the warn. I picked buy new ones since they are only 80 bucks. Just a helpful tip with the Warns. Sometimes the snap ring that goes on the end of the axle shaft will not fit. Warn says it is okay to run without it, but it is in tiny letters at the bottom of the instructions.
