Parts for Dana-Spicer Model 44 Front Axles in 1973-1980 Chevy and GMC 4x4 Trucks
We have a good selection of parts for the 1973 to 1980 GM Dana Spicer Model 44 solid front 4x4 drive axle. The 1973 model year Dana 44 had a number of engineering changes that made it stronger and more reliable than the 1972 axle, The Dana 44 was the sole front drive axle used in by GM from 1973 to 1976 for SUVs, 1/2 ton and 3/4 ton 4x4 vehicles. In 1977 GM started to replace the Dana 44 with the all new corporate, 10 Bolt, 8-1/2" Ring Gear, beam type solid 4x4 front drive axle, however the Dana 44 continued to be used by GM to the 1980 model year after which it was dropped entirely from the GM lineup. For the Dana 44, 1977-1/2 also marked a change in hub and spindle design for all models. Although the differential parts are totally different, the 1977 to 1980 GM Dana 44 and the GM 10 Bolt front axles share a lot of common parts from the axle u-joints out to the hubs.

Axle Shafts and Axle Slingers
GM used the same left and right axle shafts for all 1973-1980 4x4s with Dana 44 front axles. Effective with the 1973 model year, the axle u-joint was beefed up to the Spicer 1350WJ size, a huge improvement over the dinky 1310WJ axle u-joint used on the 1969-1972 Dana 44 open knuckle axle.

Axle Shaft Seals and Seal Kits
All 1973-1980 Chevy and GMC 4x4 models with Dana 44 front axles have Inner Axle Shaft Oil Seals pressed in the inboard end of each axle tube, right next to the differential side bearings. These seals contact the inner axle shafts to prevent gear oil from running out of the differential and down the axle tubes. Old age, blown axle u-joints, and/or grit that works it's way into the axle tubes and cuts the seal are the usual causes of failure. A bad Inner Axle Shaft Seal can be detected by oil coming out the end of the axle tubes next to the axle shaft u-joint. Usually when these Seals start to fail, they will seep oil so the leakage may go undetected for quite some time. Many a ring and pinion set has been burned up from axles that lost all their lube when long term seepage was not noticed. Two different Seals were used depending upon year. Axle disassembly including differential removal is required to replace the Inner Axle Shaft Seals. Link to Our GM Web Page Index

Axle Universal Joints
We offer three different Universal Joints for your hard working 1973 to 1980 Chevy or GMC 4x4 SUV or Truck with a Dana 44 solid front axle. All are good, reliable products, but different manufacturing techniques and seal types will have a major influence on the ultimate life of the joint. Our most popular choice is our TK40712 cold-forged, non-greaseable, original equipment replacement U-Joint. The wear-resistant cold-forged cross and superior sealing make it the best choice for both low maintenance and long life. QU40754 and QU90007 are hot-forged and are equipped with single lip seals. They are greaseable through a flush fitting threaded into one of the caps. With good maintenance and quality lubricant like our Pyroplex® Plus Grease, these joints will last and last.

Ball Joints
The 1973-1980 GM Dana 44 Beam Type open knuckle front axle uses replaceable Ball Joints pressed into the steering knuckle. Both Ball Joints are weight bearing. A threaded adjuster that screws into the upper hole of the axle yoke is used to provide preload on the Ball Joints. Dana has modified the seal configuration on the current production parts, but the high quality and basic Ball Joint design has remained unchanged since the early 1970's. Over the years we have found the average Ball Joint life of our non-greaseable, factory Dana Ball Joints to be 7 to 10 years for vehicles used as daily drivers and/or work vehicles. Link to Our GM Web Page Index
QU40187 Original Equipment Ball Joint Set for 4x4 Bolt Front Axles are the current production original equipment, factory lubed, Upper and Lower Ball Joints with hardware for 1973-1980 Chevy Blazer/K10/K20 and GMC Jimmy/K15/K25 4x4 trucks with Dana 44 open knuckle front axles.
     
     
Brake Parts
All 1973-1980 GM Dana 44 front axles used the same size disc brake pads. The Caliper Support Plate/Brake Shield assemblies will vary by both year and model. For the Caliper Support Plate/Brake Shield assemblies, 1/2 ton and 3/4 ton parts are always different as the 3/4 ton trucks have a larger diameter rotor. From 1973 to 1978, both left and right Caliper Support Plate/Brake Shields assemblies are the same on both sides of your axle. Effective with the 1979 model year, left and right Caliper Support Plate/Brake Shields assemblies are different. Link to Our GM Web Page Index
QU30164U Used 1973-1978 3/4 Ton Combination Caliper Support and Brake Shield works on either the left or right side of your 1973 to 1978 Chevy K20 or GMC K25 3/4 ton Dana 44 front axle.
     
     
Differential and Pinion Bearings (Individual)
All 1973 to 1980 Chevy K10/K20 and GMC K15/K25 4x4 trucks with open knuckle Dana 44 Front Axles use the same differential and pinion bearings.
All bearings are not created equal for fit or durability, so we only stock first class, long lasting, Timken® Differential and Pinion Bearings for your Dana front axle. Timken® was and is a a major original equipment supplier of top-notch bearing components to Dana Spicer. Since I first started rebuilding Dana axles in the mid 1970's, I have found Timken® Bearings to be the most consistent in relation to the published dimensions of any bearing on the market which makes rebuilding an axle right the first time a WHOLE lot easier!

Differential Bearing and Seal Kits
All 1973-1976 and some 1977-1980 Chevy Blazer, GMC Jimmy and Chevy/GMC 1/2 ton and 3/4 ton 4x4 trucks have open knuckle Dana 44 Front Axles. Many of these vehicles have full time transfer cases so bearing wear issues on front axles can be expected on higher mileage trucks. With a full time transfer case, both axles are always powered during operation. If your vintage GM 4x4 has over 150,000 miles on it, there is a good chance that significant bearing wear may have occurred on your differential and pinion bearings. When you replace the bearings, do not forget to replace the inner axle shaft oil seals.

Differential Parts
Most 1973 and all 1974-1980 Chevy and GMC Dana 44 Front Axles were factory equipped with conventional open differentials. An optional Trac-Lok® limited slip differential was offered for the 1973 model year. Depending upon the year, model and transmission, both full time and part time transfer cases were used to drive the front axle. In vehicles having full time transfer cases in which the front axle is always under power when driving, wear on the thrust washers and cross shaft can be expected on higher mileage vehicles. The differential small parts are the same for all ratios, but the ring gear flange on the case castings are different for 3.73 and numerically lower ratios and axles having 4.09 and numerically higher ratios due to the pinion gear diameter size for high and low ratios.

Gaskets and Gasket Makers
In the mid 1970's Dana made a differential cover design change to heavy gauge covers with flat mating flanges. Unlike the previous, thin gauge covers with embossed flanges which were made for use with a cut gasket, the new design, thick gauge covers are designed for sealing with RTV. If you desire, you can still use a gasket with the new type cover by combining the gasket with thin films of RTV. We stock both Ultra Gray RTV Sealant and genuine Dana Gaskets. We also stock the Hub Gaskets for 1973-1977-1/2 model year trucks with external mount drive flanges or lockout hubs. Link to Our GM Web Page Index

Hubs and Hub Parts
1973-1980 Chevy and GMC Dana 44 axles have a total of four different wheel hub configurations and two types of lockout hub mountings. 1/2 ton K5/K10/K15 models all use internally splined wheel hubs. Early production 1/2 ton models (1973-1977.5) use smaller inner wheel bearings than the 1977.5 to 1979 1/2 tons, but all used the same solid drive gear (full time) or Spicer plastic dial internal mount lockout hub. 3/4 ton K20/K25 vehicles had a major hub design change during the 1977 model year. The early trucks have a wheel hub that is drilled and tapped on it's outboard face in order to bolt on either a solid drive flange (full time) or external mount plastic dial Spicer hub lock (part time). Later production axles all used the internal spline type wheel hub similar to what was used on the 1/2 tons. For all Chevy and GMC Dana 44 front axles of the 1973-1980 era, the factory lockout hubs were made by Dana Spicer, but except for the axle shaft snap rings, no parts are interchangeable between the internal mount and external mount lockouts.

Steering Knuckles
GM used several different steering knuckles in 1973-1981 Dana 44 front axles. The differences are in the length of the spindle studs, how the tie rod mounts (above or below the knuckle steering arm) and whether or not there is a tapped hole that takes a small bolt used to stabilize the brake shield. The ball joint and spindle holes machined in the knuckles are the same for all years. Link to Our GM Web Page Index
