G2 Rear Axle Kits are made from high tensile alloy steels. These axles are forged and heat-treated for maximum strength. Big Spline options allow you to take advantage of even more added strength, gained from the larger diameter of the shafts. The larger diameter enables the shafts to withstand much higher torsional loads than the stock diameter. With either option, you can be assured that the weakest point of your driveline will not be your axle shafts.
The best part about this product is the price and I've put a lot of torque on these axle shafts and no problems

I really enjoyed this kit. Much more solid than oem. Only too small beefs. One, no instructions - which you can google dana 44 rear axle replacement to find directions easily. I used Dana's guide. Two, the wheel studs are a 1/4" shorter than oem studs. I was able to order replacements made by Allow USA, 99STUD2 1/2" dia. 20 pitch 2" length, but it would have been nice to have been warned ahead of time. Steel wheels would have been ok, but my alloys - Pro Comps - are a good 1/2" thick leaving 1/4" of thread for the lug nuts.
Would order again!
Will the bearings and seals all be installed or do they come uninstalled and require separate installation?(a press)

You will need to have them pressed on locally or if you pick them up at one of the stores they can press them for you. If you pickup from the store it will be free shipping also.

I purchased these axles for a Dana 44 from an '87 Jeep Cherokee XJ. Great looking axle but the axle retainers are the wrong bolt pattern. The bolt holes in the kit's retainers do not line up with the drum brake backing plate. They look just like the ones on the original axles but they are not. Of course I've already paid to have the axles assembled. This product listing includes my application so I'm puzzled why the plate is incorrect. How do I get this fixed?

The retainers work on the 90 and new housings. The retainers you need are part number D/S 35916
If you contact customer service they can swap the D/S 47160's for the 35916's

I have a 87 Dana 44 that came out of a 87 Cherokee that came stock with drums but I converted to discs. I see there is a part number for the disc brake axle kit but when you type it in or copy and paste it, nothing shows up. I can not find the disc brake kit.

The part number on the site was incorrectly listed. i have corrected the part number given in the description but the correct part will not show on the site for a few days yet. The G/296-2045-1-30 is the same cost as the G/296-2033-1-30. and is in stock in our main warehouse. The only difference between the two kits are the seal retainer plates that go on the axle shaft have a spacer ring that make up the difference in the thickness in the backing plate. if you are installing your disc kit at the same ti,me you already have the correct retainer plates. Thank You
