    i tried searching, but it brings up too much results that are not related. i know this has been covered before so a simple yes will sufice, but will what parts do i need to make a big hub flat top knuckle work with the regular internal spline hubs. do i need the spindle from the internal spline, or does it matter? i figured that the spindle from the internal spline would bolt up to the external spline knuckle, and then i can just use all the internal spline parts from the spindle out. also, what caliper bracket do you use? and i assume you use the rotors from the internal spline if it matters. all 8 lug btw, and on a hp housing.

    if you are asking about swapping knuckles then the answer is simple. the only difference between the knuckles is the flat top passenger side and how the tie rod mounts. the spindle mount bolts are the same pattern.
