knuckle housing

The truck I am building is a leafer 109 with a V8 and coiler axles made to fit a leaf sprung chassis. The LH knuckle housing from a RHD will allow me to run both tie rod and drag link up front away from the leafs.
I have to drill and ream new holes, but am pretty certain I have enough material on the arms to work with.
The LH knuckle housing from a LHD has only the tie rod provision on the rear arm- it has no forward arm. When I looked at the RH knuckle housing's forward arm which connects to the steering box there is plenty of space to allow another hole/rod. When I measured the distance from center(top pin) of the existing (rear arm) holes for the tie rods and transpose those measurements to the front arm I find that there is enough space to allow a second set of holes in the correct locations. So with a LH knuckle from a RHD I will have tow forward facing arms.
To these arms I will have to drill and ream new holes for the tie rod moving it from the rear behind the diff (and fouling on my leaf springs) to the front...or so I hope.
Please let me know what you find and what you want for it. Thanks- John in Delhi NY 13753

You need to specify which swivel housing, there are at least two different ones that I know of. Mine have a big step at the top to make room for the big railco bush. Commonly available US Disco and RR housings do not have this.
