dana 44 flat top knuckles?

i have a HP dana 44 front axle out of a 79 ford bronco in my 91 YJ... i need flat top knuckles to do my steering properly... i heard wagoneers came with flat top dana 44 knuckles. or are there any other flat top knuckles that will work with my 44?

thanks
nick

milled? as in the top of the knuckle, to make it flat and accept the studs to hold the bar on? i really only NEED the passenger side, to accept my drag link from the pitman arm... the driver side can wait...

so explain the milling and drilling please?

thanks!

Def. need to re-evaluate the hardcoreness here....but...




Mill, drill and tap is whats needed to attach the high steer arms. We machine the tops of the knuckles perfectly flat so the arm seats and doesnt rock. Some say the friction between the arm and knuckle is actually what steers the vehicle. Go search search search, this is 101 stuff.


Mr N's needs to be your next stop.
