the only thing worth anything off of a D50 TTB is the slip shaft (center u joint) as its bigger than a D44 TTB, but you can run that on a D44 TTB if you swap it in. swapping to the D50 isn't going to give you much else for strength, its basically just a 44 with big bearings and hubs from what i understand.
and like seboh said, the pivots are different (beams on a D50 are quite a bit shorter) as well as it being leaf sprung not coil.
D50 = far from direct replacement.
