I've read the write up in the tech department and it left me with a couple of unanswered questions on what im wanting to do. I've got a 10 bolt under the front and i've talked to alot of people about doing a 8 lug 44 conversion and pretty much concluded that the strength difference between the two doesn't amount to changing the whole axel out. Im wanting to do crossover steering as well and ive managed to get a set of flat top 44 knuckles for 40 bucks. Neither knuckles had any parts left on them since the axle they came from was pretty much stripped to the nibby. What spindles would i need to go on the knuckles to do the 8 lug conversion? Could i just use my stock 10 bolt spindles with the 8 lug hubs/rotors? Also, does the big bearing spindles/hubs add meritable strength to the 10 bolt....or is it even worth concerning myself with. Im getting ready to put in my 14ff and need to know what to do about these spindles. Thanks.
