The spline count will be the same...30. Check the case for cracks, nicks and burrs. I've used one that looked like it had been used for target practice and it still works. It might be a good idea to replace the clutch packs with new ones before you install it.

go for it...i just put a '87 d44 with trac lock in my '91...easy switch!
p.s.....it also had 231,000 miles! on it.....works great. just remember if your going to put 33's or larger...you may want to install 4.11's or 4'56's gears now. if you change the gears...then also put you locker in at the same time. if your new d44 has alot of off-road miles...there's a good chance your trac lock is no longer working. just check it out. happy WHEEL'IN!
