  • dana 44 axle update??

    I have a Dana 44 rear that I'm going to rebuild and put under my 64 Wagonaire.
    It came out of a 56 ? Stude car..
    In a conversation about this particular rear end, I was told that the earlier non-flanged axle can be changed over to the flanged axles by changing the axles, bearings, seals, and other parts at the flanged end of the axle..

    I have not rebuilt this type of rear axle before..
    So I found the conversation interesting..

    So,not knowing, I'm curious, is it possible to take an earlier tapered Dana 44 axle and swap the axles to the later Dana 44 flanged axles??[?]

      Thanks, I'm aware of the upgrade kit sold by Fairborn.. I was curious if this has ever been attempted or for that matter if it had ever been done..
      Looks by the lack of replies, it's not been done..
      Thanks..

        The Studebaker flanged axles will not work in the standard housing, thus the kit with special axles.
