Love this thread. So I can get a HP44 from a '66 F100 locally pretty cheap. I was thinking if I do that and do not care about the high steer knuckles, can I just narrow it and use Waggy inner shafts and then from the u-joints out use '79 F150 everything? Stub shafts, hubs, ball joints, knuckles, brakes, etc.? So basically the only Waggy parts would be the inner shafts. I guess I am not sure what all is interchangeable. Things like ball joints, spindles, and stub shafts, etc. come to mind. I could follow this thread 100% but if I do not need the Chevy knuckles and want to do this on the cheap, would using all the Ford stuff make the most sense? I see some guys run Waggy stuff, some Dodge, some Chevy, and some Ford so just looking for the cheapest/simplest option to have 5x5.5. Thanks!
