8 8 And Dana 44 Ring Gears

Even the ring gear diameter of the 8.8 is larger than the Dana 44, but still smaller than the 60, as shown in this stack. In many high-pinion rear axle applications, the Dana 44 is too small and weak, while the Dana 60 is overkill. To produce the best combo available, Currie designed the Currie High-Pinion differential so that it would be stronger than the 44 yet not as big and heavy as the 60.
