Arrow dana 44 knuckles question

here's the deal, got the works on getting an EB d44, just the housing. Looking to slap knuckles out from a waggy d44 or similiar to get disc brakes and hi-steer set up. Just making sure my assumptions that all solid axle d44 knuckles are interchangeable with each other as long as you stick with the knuckle out parts the same(i.e. spindle, brakes, bearings, and outter axle shaft n hubs) and keep the inner parts the same(i.e. guts, inner axle shaft). Can someone please confirm this for me? and maybe guide me to some better parts for the knuckles out if something is better besides the waggy d44?

Yep you are correct as long as you swap the outers (shafts knuckles etc) out you will be fine. Just wondering though what is EB 44 I have never heard one called that?

well from what i've read you can get some FSJ(full size jeep) i.e. the waggy d44 have flat top knuckles or have the ability to be machined and make work, but as chevy is extremely abundant(i can get a d44 for like $80 complete) i may just do that and scrap the rest.
