    which one in this picture is the flat top, and which one is the round top?

    and can you tell which one I have? It's from a '76 1/2 ton chevy.

    I won't be doing a crossover for over a year, just wondering if I had the right knuckles to do it or not. That way I know whether I need to look for them for sale anywhere while I'm overseas.

    Thanks,

    Rick

    just get a 60. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif
    Actaully you can find flattop knuckles on ebay pretty easily, and alot of people on this board have em for a decent price.

    and speaking of crossover, kits from ORD...dayum, are they backordered to hell or what??

    I hear nothing but good things about the crossover kit, so I'm quite anxious. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    OK, I have a large hub Dana 44 that has the flat top on the pass knuckle, however there are no holes drilled. Do you have to drill and tap the top of the spindle or do I not have the right spindle?

    Flat top knuckle that has been machined FLATTER, and drilled and tapped to accept a steering arm.

    ORD does them, I do them, few others do them also if memory serves me correctly.

    small Hijack, But is there a way to take your standard non flat top knuckle and have it machined for use as a flat top, so i dont have to try and locate one?
