WJ passenger side knuckle on ZJ?
Can a WJ steering knuckle be used on a ZJ? I was looking at the wifes the other day and it looks like a better setup than my ZJ steering. heres a pic of what im talking about.

WJ steering knuckles can be used on a ZJ. but it is not as simple as just using the knuckle itself. you must use WJ brake calipers/pads/rotors as well as ball joints, a spacer, bearing hubs i believe and possibly a few odds and ends. it is a good upgrade that a lot of ZJ owners with lifts or bigger tires run to improve stopping performance; take a look at the brake calipers side by side and you'll see how much bigger the WJ set up is than the ZJ.
