its either a 60 or a 44, but either way, its a high pinion on a 78/79 f250.

you also never stated what your DD was, other than a 1990.


yes, it can be done. depends on how much you know and how much skill you have if YOU can put that axle in your truck.

actually the 79 crewcabs still had the low pinion open knuckle disc brake front end

and the big headache for you would be moving your spring perches

the older style front ends have different spring perch widths. I would say unless your building a custom link suspension like a radius arm 3 link or 4 link, go with a dana 60 from a similar year 1 ton. 87-92 f350 has what you need. stick to the pre 1993 ones as they are a kingpin style, 93 and later are balljoint

79 crew cab dana 44's were high pinion and spring perches.
If it's a hd then it would be a low pinion.
5 lug d44= high pinion ( in that year)
8 lug d44. = low pinion
8 lug d60 high pinion
