want to buy a G2 Dana 44 35 spline with ARB and disk brakes new.
I also need to get a SYE/drive shaft installed.
how difficult is it to install an entire axle assembly in your garage? (i have access to a auto shop, however)
is it a matter of bolting it on and aligning the pinion/depth, and setting the backlash and checking tooth patter. Or is the axle assembled already, with proper torque on the pinion nut and backlash and depth set?
as for the SYE, if i install a SYE and shaft with my dana 35 in, what do i need to change for the dana 44? or is it possible to get a set up that would work well with stock dana 35 and also bolt on to D44 with 1310 yoke? seems like the size of the yoke would mix things up. and i dont know how much more the pinion sticks out on the 44.
another quick question. If i got the 30 spline instead and wanted to switch to the 35, what all needs to be changed in the carrier assembly before you install the larger?? axle shafts?
