Front waggy 44 questions

Im looking at a 1988 grand wagoneer front axle.
its has 2.72 gears and the standard 6on5.5 bolt pattern.

I read somewhere it can be converted to 5on5.5 with ford parts?

also i would need to re-gear it to 4.10's. does it need a new carrier to do this?

any help would be greatly appreciated

It can be converted to 5 on 5.5 and yes you would need a new carrier. The carrier break on the D44 is 3.73 and down numerically/3.92 and up numerically.
