Can anyone supply copies of the shop manual pages that detail the dissy and assy instructions for the Dana 44 rear axle. It's used in the high performance vehicles and I have one to rebuild.
Thanks

This is the one I used from the friendly internet byway of Dana Spicer.

Take heed of the shim pack instructions and spreading the case. No crush sleeves in these little devils.

By the way, if you are replacing the carrier bearings and you should, there is a little trick of opening up the old bearings to slide on the shaft because you'll probably be putting the carrier in and out several times and pressing the bearings off and on each time is PITA. If it's not in this PDF, just Google it up.

Thanks to all. The diff is a flanged axle unit ( I forgot that little detail when I posted) and I've done unmerous tapered axles but this is my first flanged axle.

Thanks agaiin.
