I will be performing some upgrades on my front and rear axles soon and wanted to walk through a comparison of upgrading my existing D44 front axle versus buying a UD 44 front axle, I had already decided to upgrade my existing axles, but this may provide some insight into the cost differences. I want to keep my FAD (and I am in the minority on that I am sure).

In the end, I believe they are a few things that I am doing that are "better" than what comes with the UD44 and vice-versa. For the cost difference, (both with all of the things I am doing vs. mimicking the UD 44 as closely as possible), I am happy with upgrading my axle versus buying the UD44.

Hope this helps someone and thoughts/comments welcome.
