The location of the axle pad on the tube can sometimes be complicated if the centersection of the diff is in the way as with an offset pumpkin, or if the pad is too close to the housing end. This Dana 44 flanged axle may be the right length for your rig, but outboard-mounted springs may locate the pad on the tapered part of the tube (arrow), which may also interfere with the tire or backing plate.
