spindle = steering knuckle (?????)

The term spindle and steering knuckle get thrown around a lot it seems, and I'm not sure what the difference between the two are, or if they're the same thing. Anyone?

The spindle is bolted to the steering knuckle with 6 or 8 bolts usually!

Re: spindle = steering knuckle (?????)

the steering knuckle is what holds the ball joints.. which go into the axle knuckle.. (the big open piece where you can see the axle shaft joint inside them).. the spindle bolts to the steering knuckle.. and its what your wheel bearings/tires ride on... (the outer axle shaft goes thru the spindle.. and sticks out the end for the manual locking hubs to engage/disengage)
