    10 bolt knuckles wouldn't work on your axle since your tie rod goes in thru the top of the knuckle arm in the tapered hole.

    A 10 bolt taper hole only allows the tie rod to mount thru the bottom of it.

    In other words, the knuckles make the tie rods opposite of each other.

    You can use either knuckle as long as both tie rod ends come into the knuckle from the same direction. The tie rod ends are the same as far as the taper is concerned so if your existing knuckles have the tie rod end coming in from the bottom and you have a knuckle with it coming in from the top you would have to use both knuckles coming in from the top and use your existing tie rod.
