i put on my flat tops on, now the calipers wont go on, they wont go into the bracket they touch the nuckle. What parts do I need to change now???? the bracket and rotor or the caliper?

Just got the answer.
So much for High steer.

Ford knuckles, this shows a 1/2 ton knuckle verse a 3/4 ton knuckle. The red arrow shows the notch in the 1/2 ton which clears the caliper. The 3/4 ton does not have this, thus you can not swap Ford 3/4 ton knuckles on a 1/2 ton axle. If you run the 3/4 ton knuckles you must run the 3/4 ton brakes, rotor and hub. (Unless you do some custom work, not recommended!) See Ford Super-Cab knuckle for a solution to this! (Pic wanted)
Note Ford Supercab knuckle is the same as the F150 but with a flat area on top.

How about something like this? It worked on a Ford D60 - which uses the same brakes (stock) as the F250 D44.



Similar bracket available here:

if you put the 3/4T knuckles on with the 3/4T calipers, brakes, and hub, can you still use the 5-lug pattern axleshaft? I wanna try this swap but dont want to have to get a new set of wheels.
