    I'm looking in doing crossover steering on my 8 lug 10 bolt until I can afford a Dana 60.

    1) Can a flat top Dana 44 knuckle fit on a 10 bolt?

    2) Does anyone have one for sale that is already drilled for cross over steering?

    3) Other than a link from the steering box to the knuckle, what else would I need? (I have a 2wd steering box.)

    Thanks,

    1- yes
    2- I don't
    3- you will need the arm that bolts to the flat top knuckle.

    Don't have one that's already drilled, but have one. And you might not need a dropped arm, depending on the lift.

    I think you have to swap both knuckles, pass and driver side. I was talking to Mudzer about this swap and he mentioned that you must swap both, but I forget why.

    you have to swap both since the tie rod on the flat top is mounted above the knuckle, where-as the 10 bolts tierod was mounted underneath the knuckle.
