Tie Rod Location And Caliper Mount

5 of 11
Both the tie rod location and caliper mount are cast into the Ford knuckle, so the only option was to swap knuckles. Since we only had one knuckle to begin with, we were in the knuckle market anyway. Dynatrac had the solution for us with high-mount steering arms, and bolt-on dual piston calipers. A friend with a lathe spun up a 1/2-inch thick adapter ring to mate our five-bolt Ford spindle to the six-bolt Dynatrac knuckle and it spaces the spindle and hub to the stock Ford distance from the ball joint.
