Thinking about Reid knuckles with Metalcloak steering uograde

I have a Carbon axle coming and want to add Reid knuckles to it and Metalcloak steering upgrade as well. MC mentioned a possible issue and wait to see how it lines up first before changing steering stabilizer on it. Anybody will to teach me this issue?

What issue did they say? I have Rancho knuckles with MC steering. I ordered the MC steering before deciding on the Rancho knuckles so it’s not the flip kit. My ProRock 44 has a multi position track bar mount so all I did was flip the MC drag link. The Rancho and Reid are already tapered reverse since you have to run a flip with them. I have no issues.

So they put their name plate on a currie axle and it becomes a carbon axle. Got it. I would still call it a Currie axle.

I'm pretty sure the axle tube thickness is greater for the Carbon 5/16 wall thickness to 3/8".

I have reid knuckles on my carbon axle. I am running the fusion 2.5 ton steering gear with no problems. I did fab tabs for the ram assist though to get it right where I wanted it. I am not sure where they would be concerned?

I believe the axle housing is still 3/8 tubes unless they changed it since I bought mine.


You cant beat the warranty dirtman so I don't care wtf they call it. They will no questions asked provide free warranty replacement on everything for 10 years and the shafts are 15 years with no restrictions or limitations for warranty claim.
