1973 CJ5 Jeep axle I.D. help
How do I tell what kind of axle I have on my 1973 CJ5. I was told that I may have a Dana 44 in the rear. I'd like to see what size I have front and back. Thanks guys. Billy
Compared the axles to the chart and the Dana 44 looks like what I have on both the front and rear. Is that possible or right. I always thought that the Dana 44 was a rear only axle. I know that everyone raves about the Dana 44. I've had Jeep's for yrs but really don't know that parts as well as others, so why is the 44 so popular?
The front should be a Dana 30 if it's stock. The sides of the Dana 30 cover are straight up and down. A Dana 44 front in a CJ would be a swap in and if it's the stock '73 CJ width it would be one that's been narrowed significantly.
Stock would be a Dana 44 rear and Dana 30 front. The 44 and 30 look similar, but the 30 is quite a bit smaller. Of course, there's no telling what could be swapped in. If you can post some pictures, someone will be able to ID for you.
