Ok, My dana 30 is officially done. Bent into a nice smile
. Luckly I bought a 03 rubicon 44 front housing with factory locker, and gears. Picked it up about a year ago for 250.00, which i thought was a great deal. So I think I can buy new inner shafts(cro-moly), and new u joints, and reuse the dana 30 outter shafts, outter C's, brakes, and unit bearings??? I have a 8.8 that i built with 4:10 gears, so it'll match front. I'm just not sure if the U joint size is the same on the 44 inner connecting to the 30 outter, and will the drive shaft bolt up? Any help would be appreciated.
I do plan to sleeve, and truss it before I install, so hopefully this dosent happen again. and please keep the thoughts of junking the (fake) 44, and using a HP30 out of this tread.
