Cheap where? OEMs are 300 a pop. I have found aftermarket replacements for cheap but at this point I'm not even convinced they are bent. Might still crab a set and gusset them for good measure.








They are available for a very good price if you call them a "steering knuckle". The second someone calls the exact same part a "spindle", the price multiplies by 3.

Nice.
These and a set of spindle gussets, little practice welding...

Even these used are not this cheap.

That gusset design with the c-shaped fish piece looks very strong.

Total Chaos, these allow you to retain your sway bar also, if that's something you care about.

I'm fairly certain the cheaper Total Chaos gusset kit that doesn't incorporate the factory sway bar has been know to concentrate the stress in a certain area and crack the welds.

I've read the same. I'm gonna be messing with the Taco Tabs front bolt setting as soon as this weekend - it depends on if i get rained out on my wheeling/camping trip this weekend or not. Hopefully I'll be able to get the camber back in spec this way.
