Jeep Heavy Duty Flat Top Dana 30 – 44 Conversion Knuckles
The new Dana 30 / Rubicon 44 knuckle will transform late model Jeep axles into true contenders. The Reid Racing conversion knuckles are the cheapest and strongest way to adapt these axles to use early style Chevy & Jeep Dana 44 “outers”. Early outers use tapered roller bearings, which eliminates the problematic unit bearings and allows standard lockout hubs to be used. Bigger brakes, more lug pattern options, and better aftermarket support come along as part of the conversion. The knuckles are also flat topped and predrilled for high steer arm use.
