What are the tie rods hitting?

I'm having mine done by a local guy who's done many. He says he can do it installed for less than M.O.R.E.Gotta do it! Lol

I did the flip many years ago when running the D30, worked great for me till I blew the knuckle off, then I upgraded to a D44 & went Hi-steer 1ton setup

Went through OK4x4, At the time they supplied a tapered reamer also. Doesn't look as if they do now though, but you could ask

If I ever need to change knuckles, I think that would be the rout I would go too. I think my driver side knuckle has a bend in the arm, it is slight so I am not sure if it is indeed tweaked or not. It may prove to be the excuse I need to do it though LOL.
