    I have a freind that will give me a pass side flat top d44 knuckle!!! :D
    Only problem it's off a 6 lug d44.
    What is the difference, if any, between a 6 lug and an 8 lug knuckle. It's not close enough for me to look at & don't want to drive that far if it's not worth it...
    Any info is appreciated!! :bow:

    the knuckle them selves are the same, its everything else outward from the knuckles. everything will interchange also.

    Isn't the TRE taper bottom-up vs. top-down?

    As U2Slow points out, it's important to have matching knuckles, unless you're doing high steer. If you can, get BOTH knuckles from your friend.

    The 6-vs-8 lug thing is a non-issue. The spindle and rotor are the deciding factors there.
