Hello everyone, I've been searching high and low for a set of 87-89 Xj knuckles. I can't find any in stock anywhere and none of the local jy have any xjs from that era.
Does anyone happen to have a pair to sell me or know of a place to get some. At this point price doesn't really matter....

Thanks!

Why do you need them so bad? Why not the 90+ one piece knuckles?

There are at least 6 or more on line sellers with them. 4x4 or 2wd? (I'm not sure they are the same part, they may be) I know the 4x4 front steering knuckles are online, even Ebay, about $110 each. I repaired mine with a welder as others have done, if it is the notched brake slide issue?

87-89 (including 1990?) is one piece as I recall?

I want to try a brake upgrade. It calls for 87-89 knuckles.

Jeeeesh......these guys have 0 imagination and creativity.

I had to travel to another state to get these. Paid $100 for the whole axle.

They are out there, you have to be patient and diligent.


I've beat the dead horse though........we are running out of parts, these hacks won't listen.

I sold the axle less the knuckes for $100, still had a day's travel and gas invested.

Ok. The Hollander interchange shows the knuckles interchange.

Ok, there is a typo on the Wilwood site.

Knuckle are the same, apparently, but there is something that does not interchange, maybe the brakes........IDK.

That would be awesome. I don't really have a deadline 😊
