Steering Knuckle

Stock 2WD Ranger spindle snouts have a habit of pulling out of the steering knuckles that they're attached to. The team at S.I. didn't merely fix this problem, they smashed it. In place of the stock spindle, they pressed a custom 4WD-style spindle into place, and then welded it to the knuckle. As if pressing and welding weren't enough, the bolt you see on the back side of the knuckle goes through and adds a third layer of spindle retention.
