for those suffering with CAD issues on the Dana 44s 85-01 trucks why cant you just swap out the intermediate shaft (the passenger side shaft) from an earlier Dana 44 81-84 or order one from spicer and slap that in? then with manual hubs you dont have to pay the 180 for a vaccuum motor or do any shimming or even worry about that little slider.
after that is all done make a plate to cover the CAD Motor part where the access cover is an you have an easier way to fill the front axle during lube changes!
the CAD vacuum motor from Mopar is 180$
a posi lok cable kit is 200$
premium hubs are between 80-100$
and a shaft could be scored at a J/Y for about 20-30 bucks
the plate could use the old bolts the gaskets are .50$ an the plate would be real easy. maybe 10 bucks.
plus you could do a way with the dingle ball vacuum chamber on the left side of the T-case an have another place to safley run true duals exhaust!
well whatcha think?
oh heres for CAD Owners an for GP (not gun pilot, general purpose)
