FYI,

those "CNC" knuckles wont last ANY Longer than the stock cast ones. WHY? becasue they are cast first - then CNC'd a little to clean them up, and then anodized blue. No stronger o better metal is used, and I ve got a baggie full of wasted ones I can prove it with.

The PBS conversion is about the same cost, and wont fail you. That is the far better investment.

Actually the knuckle that broke was the CNC ones from nitrohouse they were about a week old, going to get the PBS now, luckily It was the opposite knuckle that i had broken originally so now i have 1 CNC and 1 cast on it. not pretty but it works, that was until i bent the rear driveshaft into a V and sheared of the rear dogbone the next week. Hey I think if your not beating on it your not driving it LOL

nightcrawler - I bet they will trade them CNC's in for a PBS conversion and you pay the price difference if any ... and shipping. You might ask.

Good Luck.

Better to know now than after you BREAK THEM

Everyone is a little different. The PBS has it's weakness as does the CNC knuckles. The thing to do is use what works best for you. Everybody has a slightly different driving style. I have broke the s#@t out of C-Hubs king pins and PBS suspensions before. Here is the best advice I've seen given on this subject:DON'T HIT ANYTHING AND YOUR PARTS WON'T BREAK.
