    Are the knuckles of disc and drum brake D44's the same? Is the only difference the actual brakes or is the knuckle different too? Thanks

    The spindle bolt pattern is rotated. That causes the caliper to have some clearance issuses.

    What he said, however there is more. I have a set of both of disk and drum knuckles and the casings are differant also. Disk knuckles are cast with a valley to clear the caliper. I give a pic but don't camera or a means to post the pictures.
