Ran into the same problem and had to bite the bullet and buy new ones too. Summit had the best deal that I could find on them at that time (bout 9 months ago).

Looking at the knuckles, will they even need swapped out?? They look identical.
The newer, and smaller, two bolt caliper brackets have castings on the knuckles for the caliper brackets. But the six bolt caliper brackets simply bolt on to the six studs on your knuckles.
You may not need to go through the trouble of swapping knuckles.

Well the battle continues LOL do not have the tool for preloading the ball joints so kinda at a standstill but after assembling and taking apart about 20 times due to me being a dumb%$# I think I have a handle on it and it will be awesome when I get done Thanks to Steve (skizriz) I will have disc brakes up front still have the engine to finish. The guys on this forum are the best of the best and pay it forward goes above and beyond here.

I think one day we should have a CJ Forums Meet and Greet in a central location where we could all meet up and hang out and meet each other.

I made one of Those tools out of a 3/4 deep well socket when i needed one. It only took a few minutes to notch out the teeth with a cutoff Wheel on my grinder. It worked so well Ive used it a few times now.

Well sorry for being MIA have been waiting on tools and playing with other toys LOL anyhow here are a few pics.

Started out with this needing the tool to set the torque on the insert.



So the tool arrived and I got to work worked like a charm put the knuckle on and tighten the lower ball joint first to 85ftlbs

Then using this tool tighten the top adjuster to 50ftlbs. When the knuckle is in place that is.



When we are done button it all up and it looks like this.



And here she is back on four tires still need brake hard lines and stuff Oh and to put the engine back together LOL

And one other thing here is my other new toy I was playing with got this after some horsetrading LOL


Kinda boring as I had to set my cell phone down to record LOL that and my Butt shake

This is Electric and it has 50 volts worth of batteries in there and they last about 5 minutes LOL

One other thing are the wheel studs different lengths from drum to disc ran into a problem with the wheel spacers the studs were to short they only went about half way into the nut so something not right there.

What size wheel spacers are you running? I always ran 1.5" and the nuts had a thread or two from the stud poking out of the nut.

Unless your old studs were longer, and the spacers are made to use with them. The spacers may be different from drum years to disk years. Do you still have your old ones to measure the stud length?

Think the dang things are 2 inch lol not home right now but I do know the drum studs were longer by about an 1/2 inch but where to find studs for that in the right length.

Looking at spacers, they all say they will fit all of the years including the earlier and later years. I guess it's just the spacer size.

Found this.

That Helicopter
. Sounds like the real thing.

COOL!!!

Now you need a GOPRO to mount on it!

Sorry, can't help with the spacers, except to say I run a set on my stock narrow trac axles with problems. It is important to have a full lug nut of threads. And as long as they don't interfere with bolting the wheels on, I don't see a problem.
