Make sure the axle tubes aren't pressed into the radius arm supports. You want one that has the axle tubes all the way through

Here's a link to help what to look for: http://77cj.littlekeylime.com/web_rs44.html

And here's a pic of a d44 from a ford with the axle tubes going straight throught the supports.

F150 D44 HP

Check out Tedd's(TMS2U) site at www.teddnet.com. He used a 76.5 F150 D44 HP for his build-up.

Don't tell me you're gonna finally do it, Dale. Maybe with your driving style you should just start right out with 60's.

No, no the 40's will just negate the D60's in Dales case. Maybe D60's and 31's or 33's max would stand a chance of surviving his right foot treatment.

Idealy you'd want to get a 77 or older from a half ton truck. There is one exception and that would be the 78 or so extended cab front end because it was a leaf spring setup. If you are going to use the radius arm style mount I wouldn't have a problem running a 78/79 axle housing from a bronco or f150 but they aren't as strong as the earlier models. If I remember correctly the 76 and 77 came with disc brakes and welded radius arm mounts to make it easier to identify.
