and while we're at it, I cannot seem to find out what makes a front axle a "kingpin" or "flat top". It's the knuckle that dictates this, right? SInce this doesn't have knuckles, then I can come up with a good solution for high steer and such later when I get knuckles right?

IIRC, the diffference is "kingpin" or "ball joint" and is the connection method for attaching the axle "c" to the knuckle. A d44 will be the ball joint style.

Flat top refers to a type of knuckle that is easy to modify for a high-steer set-up.

nice, that makes more sense to me now. And I think I made sense of Mr. N's info page now and have decided that due to the cast in spring perches, I wouldn't be able to use that dana 44 for a TJ. :homer:

thanks for the help
