If you do have the closed knuckle front 44 you are better off ordering the front knuckle seals for a 1968 1970 jeep wagoneer...gladiator...ect i got mine from jc whitney..for my 69 K/20 front c/k 44 and these are the same parts...fit perfect

I know its wierd, but this way you can get them...and they were not that much anyway...it is still a dana44 no matter what it was in,unless a ford front then its reverse rotation high pinion.

Found them thanks again. Anything else on the knuckle I should get. I never took one apart, I only worked on 44's with ball joints 1975 up.

I am ordering the service manual today. Pics would help if you can send some. LMC truck doesn't have the parts i'm looking for. Any other parts places you know of? Thanks again.

Re: dana 44-5F closed knuckle front end

Is there a any difference in the dana 44 open knuckle front axles? My 72 k10 has the dana 44 with -5F in the lower right hand corner. My dads 72 k5 blazer has 44 in the lower right hand corner. Are they different?
