Jeep axles

Hi guys, I've bought an axle combo a while ago and the guy selling told me they were from a Jeep J20. It's a Dana 60 30 spline full floater rear and a Dana 44 HD front axle if my info is correct. I've went SOA on my Jeep and now need to tackle the steering of the Jeep. I want to be sure that I buy the right steering arm for my axle.
Here are some pics of the axle under the Jeep.

You need a knuckle on the passenger side like the one on the driver side. The drag link connects the pitman arm to the passenger side knuckle, not the drivers side knuckle.

According to Mr N's website:

"Dana never made a passenger side knuckle that was drilled and tapped from the factory. This is a general misconception that the above knuckle disproves. They are very rare but they are out there, so keep your eyes open. So far I only know of one other knuckle other then the one I found. Stamped # RC38618."


I was thinking of going with hydraulic steering, forgot to mention that in the initial posting. So just need to know what steering arm it is I need to purchase.
But thanks for pointing to the site, I already found that one.
