    Hi everyone, my name is Ken, I live in Denver, CO. I have a 82 K1500; right now it has a 33 21.50 15's on centerline convos. It has a crappy 3" body lift that the former owner put in. I have a 52" front conversion in the works and I'm going to try to build a rear spring set up that I've seen previously. I found a dana 44 right side flat top knuckle in a local wrecking yard, but its off one of those old dodge's with the one piece wheel bearing; I think its a full time four wheel drive. Will I be able to use this or do I need to keep looking?

    Punctuation is your friend. I couldn't even read that crap. Please begin again, and use proper English sentence structure, or wait for someone who can read babble.

    I'd like to help you, really... but I can't read your question.

    I guess I left out that i wanted to run crossover steering and high steering eventually. If this caused any confusion im sorry. As far as that crack about english last time i checked this is english, my wife understood the question and she works in the morgatge industry. So if you just dont understand what im talking about please keep your comments to yourself thankyou

    My understanding is that the Dodge D44's are special and unique, i.e. won't fit a Chevy axleD44/10b . Do a search for this; I posted recently with a similar question and someone was nice enough to conjure some links about the Dodges.

    You need the chevy ones.... And buy the pair, along with the tierod. The flat top knuckles tie rod mounts are tapered from the top, your newer tie rod will get into the spring pack unless you use a zero rate.
