Bronco hp44 ?

I can't find the width in the search function. I'm looking for wms to wms width. I'm trying to locate a front axle for my yj that is 66-67 inch wide passenger drop.
Thanks in advance.

77-79 f-150 rears are are 65" wmsx2. I would say the same for the front.

Are you really looking for a passenger drop or was that a typo? Broncos are drivers drop, but so are factory YJs

I think my friend's hp44 from a bronco/f150 was 66" wms to wms. Be aware that the 78 and 79 front coil spring housing are just about useless unless you plan on running Ford radius arms.

The 78 and 79 Bronco front axles have a cast iron piece holding the tubes together on each side. So axle tubes are not one piece tubes. The F150 and F100 from 78 and 79 are the same. Finding a pre 78 Bronco axle is rare.

thanks for all the info, one more question. I have been reading that the f250 axles are slightly wider (due to the 8 lug hubs) than the f150, can I swap the hubs from an f150 axle to get the 5 on 5 1/2 lugs and narow it up by an inch or two?

not to be too rude, but perhaps you should read a few of the dana 44 bibles out there that cover this stuff in great detail. even going so far as to give you exact part numbers and where they can be found in the salvage yard to get many different width, brake, steering, and lug pattern options on any d44 housing.
