I can tell you if you want to know............

    NICE!!! Did you take a pic of the 2 knuckles side by side? just to get an idea of how much it was bent?

    oh, cool! this thread is back open. i was wondering where to finish my carnage report.
    well, anyway.... i added a bent knuckle to the list. i could see that it was stressed, and possibly bent by the rust flakes coming off where the steering arm ties into the knuckle. well, now i know for sure. i got a new knuckle from a friend, and put it on there today. this damn thing was sooo bent that when i put the new one on the steering wheel changed position by about 120*!!
    well, i'm glad that is done. i have heard from many that it is very uncommon for a knuckle to be bent.. i guess they usually break.
    well, i think it is fair to say that notch kicked my a$$!
    well, some good came from it... i did do a couple of mods while in the process of these repairs.
    there you have it. :
    DAMAGE ASSESMENT:
    one 35" mt/r
    one rim.... this is perty
    one steering box
    one leaf spring
    one front shock
    one rear shock
    one steering pump /i think is ok
    one pitman arm
    and one knuckle!

    This thread was started for a run, and should have ended with the carnage report and the resulting fix of the carnage. Somehow we have gotten on to Dukes giving away his XJ? I think this stuff would be better as a PM.
