I ordered the knuckles from eBay with the link u sent me. thanks.
yeah we'll have to wait till the knuckles arrive so we can see how to include the inner bearing? might be possible to keep the type of bearing we use already and just find something that fits the knuckle the bearing can slide into? otherwise we might need to get some longer shaft CVD's like these 48.5mm shafts
anyway looks like we may be able to keep our CVD's hopefully? the bearings look like the same size as the drive cups and our wheel bearings fit inside them snuggly so I think we'll be right!
I've been talking to another guy doing the same mod to his D3 and he has advised that we need to change the ball joint on the tower to something that only allows vertical movement luckily my tt-01 parts look like they might come in handy with a pair of unused long shock ends fitting the bill perfectly as they are made for a step screw not a ball
here is a pic of the parts
