lets talk knuckles.whats the difference between my drum brake knuckles and disc brake knuckles? Is one knuckle stronger then the other? does the year matter? can I reuse my knuckle and get everything fom the knuckle out off a disc truck,fj 40, 60? does anyone have a complet set of parts I can buy to do a conversion? I went to blakes and took a look at the there stock of 60s for a conversion but they wanted 400 for the parts and they were pretty well rusted and beat up. so please school me on my options.:bowdown:
Thanks,
Ben

you want 79 and up, it has a wider bolt pattern on the steering arms and caps, also, the birf is a shorter shaft that will take the aisan hub and a bigger bell (you will need to do slight grinding on your housing to get it to fit).
