Re: Help with scout 44 steering
The Scout knuckles are designed for 0* of caster. You can use them, but you won`t care for how it drives.
ANYTHING else would be a better choice. You will need to cut loose and spin the axle yokes to get some
positive caster also. Most people use Chevy flat-top knuckles, but I went with Dodge flat-tops `cause I
couldn`t get any Chevy knuckles cheap. I took everything I needed off a `86 Dodge Ramcharger, knuckles,
spindles, stub axles, hubs/rotors, and calipers. Put it all on my Scout front end, only paid $75.00 for it all.
The main reason I went that way was to keep my 5 on 5 1/2 bolt pattern. When you want to get your tie-
rod/draglinks made, check out Spidertrax offroad. They have great prices on custom made links. Very heavy
duty and exellent quality.
