d44 5x5 bolt pattern?

Okay, got a set of axles blah blah, save the story part. But recently traded my old d30 for a 9". Came up on that. Assumed it was 5x5.5, now I asked before the trade he claimed it was and I didn't complain when it wasn't so here I go. Any factory junk that I can run on my d44 front to get 5x5 pattern?

I know I could get new rear shafts, but thought maybe swapping stock something else could be cheaper?

Just call me crazy and ill order some new 9" shafts in 5.5 or in Chevy 6 lug since I have rotors lying around to fit both on the d44.

I'm interested in doing the exact same thing! but unsure if it can be done; I'll be matching a JK rear to a waggy front; thinking I'll probably have to change the rear to 5.5x5 also; probably only because jk wheels wont clear a manual front hub.

Not sure what you are asking. read your post a couple times. But what i gather is the new axle you got and want to use is 5x5 and you want 5x5.5 ?

If thats the case, or even vicer versa (5.5x5 to 5x5) all you need is spacers:

5x5 to 5x5.5 http://www.quadratec.com/products/92807_007.htm there are others, but this is what im refering to

those spacers will probably work for my application Apostle! but I think what he's asking is (correct me if I'm wrong ltrail!):

Is there a way to Junk-Yard swap a D44 front axle to match a 5x5"
(w/no spacers)

Ha sorry. The rear 9" was apparently from a car. So it is 5x5. I was trying to think of a junkyard fix for the front d44 to be 5x5 also. Spacers are an expensive waste of money IMO.

Long day.

Found this for you. Not sure which, if any, are D44. and not sure which, if any, are solid fronts. and... not sure which, if any, are 4wd and not 2wd axles.

http://67-72chevytrucks.com/vboard/s...d.php?t=234769

07 and up JK rubi is a 44, with 5x5. if you can find one of those, or if those shafts will work in yours.

Have a Chevy front 44. 6x5.5 pattern. I have plenty of d44 rotors lying around so I could do the 5x5.5 but seems the car axles had different bearing and plate so I can't must jam new axles with the 5.5 pattern in it from what I read.

Rubi axle would be nice in theory but it's narrow as heck and has d30 outers.

5.5 probably wont clear the hubs.

I thought that too buy wasn't sure. Don't want the d30 outers that defeats part of the upgrade purpose

yeah, i believe the ford 5x5.5 is the smallest you can go without aftermarket hubs.

gonna recount the splimes and check bearing to see if I can drop in some different shafts for 9 & just run ford or dodge front hubs.

Saw that, not thinking the 5x5 would fit. Can't clear front locking hub. Wouldn't be worth drilling rears as there are very large holes between the studs for access to the backing plate bolts. And I counted and its a 28 spline. Gonna get some 31's possibly chromos and then I can order a bolt pattern of choice.

Thanks
