I have an extra set of knuckles if you're interested in them. The passenger side still needs machined though. Send it out to PartsMike and he'll do it for $50 + the ride. PM me if you're interested in them.
Where is this parts Mike guy located?? I'll keep you in mind. Do just the normal chevy knuckles extend the width of the axle any?

In the next couple weeks I'm going to work on picking up my axles but going to take a little searching lol.

PartsMike.com he's located in California. Then knuckle fits in a medium flat rate box so it's only 15.50 to ship it accross the country. And as far as I've seen, they make the axle another 1/2" wider per side

Ok thats cool I'll have to compare prices with local machine shops too. And I will also have to keep that in mind because I am trying to keep the width of both axles similiar. So prob my best bet is to get the knuckles and everything to run high steer set up then see how much to shorten it lol

No, studs are separate. Here's the link for you:

I'll keep the thread going as I gather parts....just been buying tools slowly as well so funds start to get low. Should be building a new front bumper here soon to better protect my radiator and what not. Also going to plate the bottom of my lower control arms to beef them up and help me slide off rocks instead of getting hung up. Obv it is only temporary so I can still wheel until axles are built and ready to drop in. Will post pics as I move along.
Thanks again
