does anyone know if the outer knuckles off an 89 f250 ttb dana 44 would work on a 78 solid front axle off another 250. I am looking to swap out the ifs for a straight front axle and i have found an open knucle dana 44 housing and i know the gears and axles will work but i dont know abut the knucles and rotors and such.

are you sure the 78 axle is from a 250 or possibly a f350?

i know for sure that the 350 axle has a king pin rather than ball joins so i would think that wont work however i have not tested it yet.

wont the early f250 have five boly spindles and maybe the 89 might have 6 bolt spindles

it should work with these few things addressed so do it and let us know ok.

I dont think the old ford open knuckle 44 will be compatible with the newer style IFS axles, the only think you may be able to use is the axle shaft themselves......count the splines, the lenghts should be correct.
