Front Knuckle

The front knuckles look modified because we had previously removed them and had the steering arms lengthened by Knoll Racing. Most Dodge trucks use an inverted Y steering setup where the drag link runs from the steering box to the passenger-side knuckle and the tie rod runs from the driver-side knuckle to the center of the drag link. This system works, but it's difficult to incorporate a hydraulic ram assist to help with the massive 42-inch tires we'll be bolting on. We got the crew at Knoll Racing to TIG-weld additional plates to the knuckles to gain true crossover steering where the tie rod will run from knuckle to knuckle.
