I hauled them off for scrap iron, wish I had kept them now, but it was years before my getting on the net and reading about all those who want them.
I junked a pair of D44's from a Scout II, one was locked, and a pair of 10 bolts from a 83 Suburban, after destroying the ring and pinion in the rear.
Well, the spring saddles would have to be cut off anyway. I need the 67.5" WMS (wheel mounting surface) axle. I can weld on new saddles, but can't stretch or shrink axle tubes. I'll have to check A1. Last time I was up there, the pickins were pretty slim.
Yeah, I know that the yards have them, but wasn't looking forward to hauling a 550# greasy rear axle around if I didn't have to.
Actually, I was supposed to pick one up on Saturday, but when I pulled the diff cover off, the teeth were chipped and it didn't have a locker, but was welded up. Too bad...he told me that it had 4.56's and a "Detroit Locker". Well, it was locked all right...bummer.
