GRINDING YOUR DANA 44 FOR ADDED CLEARANCE
DANA 44 FRONT AXLE TECH
Without decreasing the axles strength you can easily grind off the bottom lip on your Dana 44. In the pictures below you can see the area that was ground off. You can go a lot deeper but then you get into the bottom bolt on the cover which will ultimately lead to a leaking cover as it gets hooked and pried off on every rock you drag it over. The differential is cast so it grinds very easily.
Stay out of this bolt hole. Make sure you do not grind too much...
