Talking EB Dana 44 solid axle swap

hey guys so as you can see im getting ready to do a sas but the axle i got came with nothing i just got the houseing. i just picked up a welded carrier ring and pinion with 5:13 gears. read up on the disk brake swap so i will invest in that but thats another story anyways i was wondering if i can take the radious arms and coil buckets off say an f150 of the same year and make them work. i plan on making extended radious arms any ways i just need the "C" part that hooks to the axle and the part the bottom coil mount bolts on. just looking for ideas and things you guys would do. any help or suggests would be apprishiated. also how big of coils should i buy if i want to run 35's? 5.5inch eb lift springs?

3.5" springs will work, dependin on what and how your setting it up for...Check out Bones build thread, I can't remember what brand they were, but you can get just the C's both sides without the arms to make your own. Any solid axle 44 with rad arms will fit, not just that year. Knuckles are not interchangeable between 44TTB and 44 SA, but you can use the hubs as they are the same, and IIRC the spindles are the same as well. The rotors will work, but you will need solid axle disc brake brackets and calipers. Hope this helps, take plenty of pics and welcom to TRS

EB 44's came stock with a 260 style u-joint, the upgraded axles use a 297 style joint, but a futher upgrade is a 760 joint ( which is a stronger bolt in replacement to the 297) www.Broncograveyard.com has the complete 6 piece 4340 axleshaft kit for $295 with lifetime warranty (We just got a set for a 44 we are building for Jay's truck) It comes with both inners and both outers and two spicer 5-760x joints...The best deal on the internet for shafts for the EB 44...

Hey guys sorry I have been out of the loop for awhile but I got the front eb axle complete. I am running 5.13s with a spartan locker 3/4 ton axle shafts and the chevy disk brake conversion. I did the dana 50 ttb yoke upgrade this where I have a question. What are people running for drive lines? And can I change the yoke on the transfercase to something larger so I can have a larger u-joint up there? If not what are people normaly running with standard 44 yokes? Oh by the way im running 37x14.00 iroks. That and the locker are the reason im trying to make everything as strong as I can. Any help would be awesome only have 3 weeks until a big off road event im support to go to so im trying to get things all put together. Thanks ill try to post pics soon.

I assume you have a 1350 t-case? There are various rear output yokes/flanges available depending on the year of donor vehicle. Most I have seen are either a 1210? u-bolt style yoke, or a bolt on companion flange style. I have no idea what your choices are for front output, but I would guess that you are limited to what you have now. You might be able to build a slip yoke eliminator. Seems to me that the front driveline used a 1310 u-joint though, which is plenty large for your application, and consequently is also the same size as a D44 (solid axle) yoke.

When I had an EB axle and a 1350 t-case, I just lengthened my factory front driveline about 1.5" and ground out between the ears on both ends for more clearance. Worked pretty well.
