Nope. It would be cool if you could though. I believe you would have to swap out the whole knuckle assy. And I don't even know if that's possible. You will probably have to swap to a whole kingpin front end to make it happen.

I was kinda thinking it would be impossible.. [img]images/graemlins/crybaby.gif[/img] What about swapping Housing End Yolks from Ball joint to king pin style..... Zach did that for his ZUk (Knuckle turning)

Sure, cut off the inner knuckles and re-weld the appropriate ones. 'Course you'd never find the parts new at any price under a couple grand I'd bet.... but then again you like to buy things NEW, right? Like TTB LOL

Re: balljoint to king pin swap?

ya you could probably do that if you are talking about converting a ball jointed 60 to king pins.
its a PITA but doable.
