dana44 ford9

So i'm picking up a dana 44 and 9" rear out of a 78 bronco thursday. Eventually it will be under a 95 yj frame i've been working on. Thinking about a stretch and spring over. Aside from the obvious, what are some things I will need to account for. The dana 44 I was told won't work because of the radius arms brackets are cast. Any other info would be great. Thanks

You can make it work. I have done it. It involves some careful grinding of the radius arms. You have to take enough off to get the ubolt to fit but not so much that you go through the tube.
