Default Steering knuckle "size"?

I'm looking for a steering knuckle that measures 29mm height.
I went to towerhobbies and found the hyper 7 being 29mm and measured one i had home and it's actually 26mm NOT 29mm.
Which buggies use higher knuckles than Kyosho and Hyper(which are interchangeable i guess)?

Why not just shim them up with washers? I do on all my buggies to remove any slop...

I could do that but i would prefer a knuckle that fits than shimming it up.
Do all knuckles share the same distance from the mounting point to the end of the knuckle (~25mm)?

which way do the "top hat" bushes go in? If the flanges are under the head of the king-pin screws, turn them around so the flanges are against the knuckle...

Other than this, i can't help any further?

The stock ones are simple cylinder tubes with no head-shim.
Anyway 3mm for me seems a bit too much.
