Re: D30 High Steering Setups?
The only problem that I can forsee with that is that the D44 knuckles are longer, there for you will need to modify the length of your steering linkage - now's the time to go to bigger rod ends and heavier linkage!
PS - I built my bulletproof linkage on a CJ-7 with a D44 front end and D30 knuckles using 1 1/8" solid bar stock. I machined the ends to accept heavy duty tie rod ends. This will not break, even under the most severe conditions (front locker, 36" Swampers, and AGR steering box and pump).
