Yep. The knuckles and everything bolted to them from a late '70's Ford with a solid front D44. The TTB 44's use different parts of some sort.

IIRC, you don't even need knuckles out. You can just use the rotor off of a 1979 Ford F150, it should bolt right up to your existing calipers and spindles.

I took a set to a machine shop once (I had brand new rotors on a rig) and they redrilled them out to 5x5.5 (from 6x5.5) for $30 per rotor.

Ford used small bearing spindles. Jeep and GM used the big bearing as did Dodge on some of their stuff. The '75-'76 Jeep D44 used the small bearing spindles.

Yep. Small bearing FSJ spindles w/Ford hubs and rotors. 4will has a Currie D44 front in his CJ that we changed to get the internal style hub. We had to do some parts scrounging, but once we found the correct spindles it was pretty easy.

I'll try and post some pics and parts list if I can find the list. Moving sucks.

Wiley,
hey I may have those spindles and hubs since my buddy just converted his Ford to 8 lug and I think I kept the parts. I will look but it was the small bearing spindle and the hub.

You'll need the knuckles too. The spindles have a 5 lug pattern as well.

cool! i am thinking of replacing the rear of my j10 with a ford 9" out of a late 70's early 80's ford which will end up with 5 lug and then convert the front to 5 lug(this is going to be our pre-runner for mexico). I used to have all that info somewhere but i figured you guys would have it off hand and I was right thanks for the help! tim

well i can tell you that my dana 44's can not handle the type of abuse we do to them and as far as a 9" belonging in a hot rod only look at the offroad race trucks we compete with and they are running a ford 9" in some manner or another. just saying, tim

IMHO a 9inch is the way to go for any kind of racing they have the two most important factors. They are light weight and strong, the only reason they arent in new fords anymore is because they take a bit more fuel to turn, since the pinion offset is greater than most axles, this is what gives them there strength.
