    Free bent(1deg) front Dana 44 axel

    Needing input if it’s a good idea to get a slightly bent front Dana 44. It’s all gutted out and needs everything . My local shop advised not to and said they would heat it to straighten it out and is hit or miss on the outcome of it. I have a Dana 30 now I would like a project for the winter

    Welcome to Wayalife. Other than the pumpkin itself, the Dana 44 OEM housing is identical to the 30. Both are prone to bending. I personally wouldn't waste the money buying the internals. I would rather save the money towards an aftermarket axle that has a better designed housing and is much less likely to bend. Plus, with an aftermarket axle, you get all the internals with it usually.

About us
“wayoflife” is a moniker that I’ve been using for 20 years now and I chose it because I think it does a great job of explaining, in simple terms, the passion I have for Jeeps and the Jeep way of life. This is a lifestyle that transcends age, gender and race as the only thing you need to be a part of it is a love for the outdoors, a desire to explore, a yearning to take on a challenge and a will to conquer it. Over the years, Cindy and I have attempted to capture the essence of this lifestyle through photographs and videos and share it with others around the world. And, this is how WAYALIFE was born.
