Nut & bolt on inside of knuckle?

I was getting ready to paint my knuckles today and noticed a strange bolt on the back side of the knuckle. It's sticking out about a 1/2" and threads into a nut and then in the knuckle. It appears the nut is welded to the knuckle and the bolt has some weld on it too. The bolt on the passengerside knuckle is bent slighty. Are these non-important items? Anything attach to them or are they used to attach anything? Thanks! BTW - If this makes no sense, I'll grab the knuckle and sit in front of my computer describing it[img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/smile.gif[/img]

thats the steering stop ( or limiter) so you cant turn sharrp enough to damage anything on a stock setup

Re: Nut & bolt on inside of knuckle?

So is it irrelavent to my high-steer setup with Parts Mike's steering arms? It doesn't look like it can be adjusted, either. Like I said, it looks like it's been welded or something. The stock knuckles of my G-Waggie D44 have the same thing, but not welded.

Re: Nut & bolt on inside of knuckle?

you can use them to adjust your tires so that they don't rub the springs... just find out if you need to grind it down, or tack some to it... Mine is adjustable

Sounds like your doing the same setup I'm doing. 80 waggie 44-to 5 on 5 1/2 detroit. I'm also swapping a rear scout 44 and spool.
