Crown Race Gears / Dana 44 Race Gears

Crown Race Gears for Dana 44 Axles

The Dana 44 axle has been used under cars, trucks, and SUVs since the early'40s and uses a 8.5" ring gear with 10 ring gear bolts. It can be found in various configurations for both front and rear applications, standard and reverse rotation, in solid axle and IFS/IRS forms. Please review the ring and pinion gear specifications below to find the correct part number for your application.

Note that all Dana 44 axles feature a 3.73/3.92 carrier break. Differentials designed for 3.73 and numerically lower gears require "thick" gears for 3.92 and higher ratios. Differentials built for 3.92 and numerically higher ratios require standard (non-thick) gears and will not work with 3.73 and lower gears. (For more information and carrier breaks, click here.)

Dana 44 Gear Specs

  • Rated for race use with up to 40" sticky tires
  • Available in standard and reverse rotation
  • Available for Jeep JK axles
