No they wont. The disc brake D44s have 5 bolt spindles and the TTB are 6 bolt

I'm faced with the same dillema, either spend $85 a piece from JBG, or redrill the ttb spindles or try to swap the complete ttb knuckles. I would like to swap in later knuckles so I can keep my abs brakes.

Are you just missing spindles or are you missing everything from knuckles out? I may have extra spindles.

This is not true. Although they have the same pattern, the spindles don't allow for a backing plate to be placed behind them. If one were to use them ,all of the vehicle weight and load would be on the spindle studs. This puts all the shear load on the studs instead of them just being in tension. Do not do it. It is very dangerous.
