View Full Version : Is this a dana 44?

11-08-2012, 03:55 PM
Hey guys I just want to see if I am out to lunch...feel like I'm asking a stupid question but..... is this a dana 44 Kingpin in this 1984 3/4ton chev truck? it's a 30 spline outer if that makes any difference. I screwed up and thought it was a 10 bolt.... without even looking I just told the kid to count bolts so now we have a 10 bolt on the table that is no good....

any if so does anyone have a new rotor/hub/nuts/spindle etc..... This kid brought this into class with no bearings left and once the hub was off the whole assembly came right off without having to remove the axlenuts.... the guy let him drive it away like that. [16]

anyway if you can help this kid out that would be awesome!

cheers [cheers]

Ok thanks guys. If you don't mind me asking, how do you know this is a 60 and not a 44? I need to know the differences apparently haha

ok so I did a bit more digging cuz I could have sworn that before i made the post that on a site I read about dana 44 coming with kingpins. now that was just reading and not looking at pictures and from what I can see from this thread (below) on pirate that they did come in a kingpin but are stupidly rare, had i known that, I probably could have drawn the conclusion it was a 60 haha


back to the kid, turns out he got this truck a non running cr125 and an iphone4 on a trade for a audi a4 that he paid $1900 for at an auction!

Thanks again!
