    Try this link: Crossover

    Looks like the cost of a junk yard visit and then some drilling and tapping.

    unless you are already running a d44 you will need to find both the right and left knuckles. the reason: the tie rod drops in from the top on the d44 and from the bottom on the c10. the only way to mix them up is to re-drill for heim joints. i have seen them listed from $50-$150 for the pair.

    I think the cast arms for the tie rods are at a different height too. I think I seen a pic of the 2 side by side on here somewhere.
     
  5. You are getting all the right answers here on the other posts. I did some research awhile back and found that it was better just to find a pair of knuckles to be safe. The castings put the arms at different heights and the tie rods are over the top too just like the other fellas said. You also need to ensure that the knuckles are from a disc brake equipped axle.
