Re: More High Steering Questions:)
James there is no complicates cutting of the knuckles or anything like that.
You will simply remove the old Chevy knuckles at the Ball Joints and reattach them to your D44 with either new or existing Ball Joints. The Driver side aftermarket steering arm will bolt right up using the factory studs, cones, nuts, and washers. The passenger side, just need to be milled drilled and tapped to mirror match the factory driver side, and the new aftermarket steering arm attachment will also be the same, as then driver side once its prepped propperly. The cheapest place I have heard for the arms are $85 each, and the cheapest for prepping the passenger knuckle is $50. These prices are through Bob Roggy Enterprises, I have never used him, but he has a good reputation with the guys on the POR board. I will talk with him this comming up weekend at the Rock Crawling Event at the Hammers,(he is a contestant). Once you have the knuckles and arms all prepped, then you simply reinstall the knuckles with the arms, and fabricate some Tie Rod and Drag Link Steering Linkage. It really isnt a very tough project, once you get started.
Here is a pic of the knuckles.
There is no "TRY", Just "DO" or "DONT DO"
