    Hi, Was wondering if dodge flat top Dana44 knuckles from say a 83 Ramcharger will interchange with a 77 chevy Dana44?

    They will but you need to transfer everything else too (hubs, brakes, etc.) and IIRC Ramchargers have a 5 lug bolt pattern which will probably not work for you.

    OK..closer inspection of the picture does show cast caliper brackets. Kinda thought they look a wee bit different. Thanks for the info guys.

    Think i'll keep looking for chevy 44 knuckles.

    There's a pair on ebay set up for high steer if anybody needs Dodge knuckles.
