    :dunno: I recently bought some flat top knuckles off E-Bay. They have a GM steering arm, but the wheel studs are a 3/8. The ball joints I bought for a "73" look the same as the ones I took off. Does anyone know what these knuckles came off of. I just got back from going through the books and shelves of NAPA & Advance Auto Parts. Any help would be appreciated,thax :confused:

    Post a picture. It sounds like you bought drum brake flat top knuckles.

    Thanks for reply! Having trouble with CK5 database, can not get a pic uploaded right now. Can I send one via your email. Am trying to find out what year they are. Thanks

    Flat top knuckles

    Thank you verrrry much for your time an effort with this. I brain farted this whole thing. The 3/8 studs hold the backing plate on. NOT the wheel studs. I'm afraid that I got locked into one thought and didn't step back an look. :D Let me know if I could ever return a favor.
