Reid, Ford 44 Knuckles Driver Side (Left Side)
D44001FL. Ford Dana 44, Left hand, flat-top steering knuckle, 4 hole, 5 bolt spindle.
Ford never made a factory 1/2 ton, Dana 44, flat top knuckle. However, from 1975 to 1979, all 3/4 ton Ford 44 front axles had flat top knuckles with 5 bolt spindles. If you try to use the 3/4 ton knuckles with half ton brakes and outers, it won't fit. Due to the lack of steering options for the 1/2 tons, Reid Racing built this replacement knuckle. This knuckle is "Made in the USA", and is cast thicker and stronger than factory knuckles. The top is cast flat and milled, drilled, and tapped for 4 hole steering arms. (3 hole steering arms will still work fine.) The new knuckle also has dual steering stops.
The factory Ford 1/2 ton 44 knuckle was cast with a few different tie-rod tapers and tie-rod location. Due to this, we suggest buying these knuckles in pairs to ensure that the right and left sides match properly.
Note: This knuckle will only fit Ford Dana 44 front axles with 5 bolt spindles! It will not fit axles with 6 bolt spindles such as the early Bronco Dana 44 and 30 axles.
