      If I were to go ahead and swap the dana 44 knuckles onto my D35 the results are that I wont have the problem of my bearings buring up all the time because the are spaced farther apart correct??

      but the down side it that now I will have a 5 on 5 1/2 bolt patter up front....what could I do to the rear to get 5 on 5 1/2??

      You can have a set of axles custom made that have the 5x5.5" pattern (Rick has some on his X).
