Not with the knuckles you have. You'll need f150 supercab knuckles or 8 lug 44 knuckles to go high steer and keep ford parts.

Here is a good source of info for you to read: http://77cj.littlekeylime.com/flatop_knucles.html

If you want to keep it 5 lug get 84ish dodge 1/2 ton knuckles.

(keeps it 5 on 5.5 also)

Good Luck, not a lot of SC trucks were built and most are long gone. Those that are left are most likely someones pride and joy.

1976 K5 Blazer knuckles, the right side needs to be drilled and tapped. There are not too hard to find and you can still run the Ford hub/rotor. make sure you get the Chevy calipers, caliper mounts and spindles. I found the complete Chevy LP D44 for 50 bucks, but then again I had time to sit and wait for it.

Right
