So you want to know if you can put the 5 lug Bronco steering knuckles on the 78 Hp D44....And then put/bolt that axle under the the bronco....right? Since I do not have the answer I can only suggest getting a tape measure first.

That would tell you real quick if it will fit, cause I believe there is a axle width difference, I guess it depends on that the radius arm C measure out to be between the 2 axles?

If you still had the knuckles on the D44 I would think that the spindles would transfer over? I know a 79 D44 F250 8 lug spindles/rotors will bolt right onto a 5 lug D44 axle easy enough.

And swap the single piston over to duel piston brake caliper.

Ok I am trying to do a little research for you...get the measurements for you. If I was home I would go tape measure them myself, I have both vehicles we are talking about, but I am OTR.
