Default AR44 axle ?'s

I there a performance difference in the one piece vs the multi piece axle kit?


I like the looks of the one piece better and I feel like it has less failure points.



The mutli piece would be nice since if there is a breakage, you can replace that component vs the entire axle housing...


Any input would be appreciated.

Never had any issues with the 1 piece myself, they worked just fine.

I have both and while i have watched some videos explaining why the multi piece is better... i am not sure personally i can pinpoint the difference (i have two rigs which have different set ups so it's hard to know what's affecting what).

But if i were to choose, i'd go for multipiece as you have the option of upgrading components.

I’ve been searching the tube and google. Can you the video you mentioned? I really think I’m going with the solid axle housing, but I just want to get all the info I can to make the best decision for my project. Thanks!

I'd say there is no discernible performance difference between the 2 types of housings.

The multi-piece housings have the very significant advantage of being able to run aluminum c-hubs as I have seen more than a few broken c-hubs on the 1 piece housings. Other than that, the other differences are insignificant or cosmetic.

My preferred setup would be the multi-piece front with aluminum c-hubs for durability and the 1-piece rear axle for the cleaner, more scale look.

It was some guy flexing the solid axle housing and then showing the multi-tube didn't flex as much.



*shrug*


When i bought my SSD knuckles, chubs etc... i ended up replacing my solid housing with the pro44 from ssd to add all the extra weight...


So i think it's more of a "clean look" vs versatile choice rather than performance?

Right on. I'm more after the clean look. I do plan to add brass knuckles and if I need more weight, I'll look at beef patties. On the 10.2 I built for the Mrs., we got some steel beadlocks off fleabay and they are pretty hefty but went together really well. Here truck is super planted and I think that's major contributor. We'll see. Thanks for the input.
