Nope, only spindles and knuckles and outer shafts interchange. What do you need?

hardly any strength diff bettween the two use the 4.10 10 bolt ,and sell the 44 and keep the other 10 bolt for parts.

ya but puttin the 10 bolt in requiers a lot more work than just changing the dana too 410. it has too be all put back together with new seals.. possible bearings.. breaks hubs rotors etc...ill just sell the 10 bolt 373 carrier and gears as a set.
