SOLD - 1978 Ford F-250 D44 Flat-top knuckles, already prepped for Hi-steer arms

1978 Ford F-250 HP D44 knuckles. 5-stud spindle pattern. Driver's side is milled/drilled/studded from the factory as part of the OEM steering system. Passenger side recently milled/drilled/tapped by Koz - no studs. Sandblasted and available immediately. Can be transported to Dearborn for pick-up.

$125.

As of right now, I can supply the correct empty housing to go with this. It is not included. I do not have an extra set of outer hardware available at this time. I'm also waiting for someone to get back to me regarding shafts.


SOLD

Spro, would these work on a 79 F150 axle to go high steer? What would I need for spindles then, the ones I already have with my axle? I know nothing about high steer, but know I need to address the steering of the f150 d44 going into my ZJ.

I don't think you can clear the calipers on the half ton stuff on the 3/4 ton knuckles. Or not with out modifing them.

You need 16" rims to clear them and they require the dual-piston calipers. I did some research (along with WhiteRhino doing some) and you can't run 1/2 ton brakes on them. The contours of the knuckles are different. The flat-top's that accept 1/2-ton brakes are kind of hard to find - apparently were on the Supercabs.

Are you certain you can't run Chevy caliper brackets? I thought you could. At least on the D60 dual piston conversion...

I don't know how you would run Chevy caliper brackets on Ford knuckles. The Ford knuckles have a 5-stud pattern. Don't the Chevy bracketts have a 6-hole pattern? If there's a way to do this with certain years/applications or fabbing, I just haven't seen the write-up, yet.

i have looked into this a long time ago too.... the knuckles dont have a scalloped cut in them to allow the caliper to be mounted closse enough to the center of the wheel to allow them to clear 15" wheels
