View Full Version : Corp10 to D44 - ujoint size
04-15-2006, 02:31 AM
Hey, I was throwing my new front Dana 44 in the blazer today, and I noticed that the pinon coupler is different from the old corp 10 - ujoint is slightly smaller. What's the word on that? is there an alternate ujoint I can get that will fit properly?
you can buy a conversion type u-joint with different size ends. you just have to know the exact measurements.
yep ...or change yolks ....spend some time at the weckers bigger is allways better and stay away from conversion joints cause there twice as much ...[cheers]

Well, I have my old one still, will the yolk from the corp 10 work on the d44? That way I wont have to buy anything, heh.

can't swap yokes from 10bolt to 44 . and i never herd of a different size fron u joint for a chev

well if that is the case then the caps are different sizes.

Anyone else have any first hand knowledge of this issue?

goto lordco, find someone who knows what they're talking about. look thru the book and find the size for the d44 u-joint, then find the size of the 10 bolt u-joint. Then go look up the combo joints and see which one has the right ends

just measure your cup size and width then look through the book yourself...
i had to do it when i swaped the d60 in to my 97 ford
as well as when i put the d44 in the BII
ended up replacing the yokes so i can run a conventional 1350 ujoint
easier to get replacments..
most peeps at lordco dont have a clue when it comes to combo joints.....

Dude, most people at lordco don't know what a fucking stover nut is.

Dude they were the same on my truck u sure it dont fit, try getting a new 10 u joint and see, just ask for one fomr a D44

I haven't actually pushed them together, but the CAPS (the little bracket you bolt in to hold the joint in place) are different.

weird man, i had no troubles wiht mine.
one would think u could just change the slip to the proper size

The slip? Y'mean the end of the yoke? I've never really worked on a diff before, so I don't really know what would be involved in such a task.

he means the slip yoke end of the driveshaft..... then u can match it to the yoke presently on your diff...
as for the (caps) they are straps and are shit seriously think about changing the diff yoke to a ubolt style or a flange style and just leave the slipyoke alone...
