    I was curious if all Dana 60 outer knuckles are the same. Because most of all the aftermarket highsteer arms are
    same. But I know the bolt patten on the top of the knuckles (4 bolts) is different, because you cant swap the
    top cap and steering arm from one side to the other. The holes dont line up. Is this how they all are? What do you
    do when you order arms if they are different? Thanks

    the 4 bolt patteren isn't the same? That's news to me, I've had my hi-steer arms swapped back & forth side to side many times. They swap between GM, Dodge, & Ford with no problems to my knowledge...
    Anyway, check out this thread, lots of info in there if ya read through the whole thing.

    The four bolt pattern is the same left and right.

    I bought a crossover arm from ORD and it fit the passenger side no problem and also the cap from the passenger side is now on the driver side. /forums/images/graemlins/confused.gif
