I want to know if the axles from a HD dana 44 out of a 78 F250 will fit a normal dana 44 like the stock ones in a bronco and will the steering knuckles fit also?

but the overall wheel mounting surface is the same there close to 69.5" just like the half ton ones. I thought it was just the outer shafts that where longer.

inners have to match the housing, outers have to match the spindle
