So you did it, really??? I really want to keep my coils, but wanted to upgrade the front end a little. I plan on going to 8 bolt and bigger brakes soon, but also wanted an easy gear change. I have 410 d50 sitting here, so when I put the rear axle in it will be an easy swap. Nifty. Just need to figure out short side stub to outer stub. Hmmm.
I have done this, my old trail rig was regeared on the cheap with an old 4.10 D50 third member. Just reuse the D44 shafts, they're the same size and spline count.
