Quick Knuckle Question

im just curious as to what year vehicles with the Dana 44 front (6 bolt spindles) had the tie-rod arm on top? i was ready to hook all my steering up with my new pass side flattop knuckle, histeer arm and drag link(keeping the stock tie-rod in the stock locations) when i noticed that the flattop that i got has the taper for the TREs so that it sits on top, while my stock 75ish driver side knuckle has the taper so that the TRE sticks through the bottom.

what can i do about this? i imagin that if i where to retaper the flattop so that it comes from the bottom that it would get too big and the TRE would not fit anymore.

it seems as though my only solution to this problem is a driver side histeer arm and a new beef tie-rod with all new TREs . . . . . .its a shame, my truck is forcing me to not be a tight ass on this project.

none the less, what did my flattop come off of?
