    Hey,
    I think I have a set of drum brake knuckles on the 44 I put together. The bolts for the spindle are roatated forward about 15 degrees. All other disc braked knuckles are lined up with the ball joint axis...while mine are not.
    Let me know if you have and experience or pictures of drum braked front 44 knuckles or backing plates.

    Thanks,
    Blake

    Even if you don't get the pics.....just let me know if 2 of the spindle bolts and the balljoints are in line with each other....or if the clocking of the spindle bolts are "off center"...clocked about 15 degrees forward compared to a disc brake setup.
    See this pic for what I mean.
