    :):confused:hi guys i have a 98 tacoma 2.7 4wd with manual locking hubs. screwed one up(knuckle) i also have 2 extra steering knuckles but are a.d.d type. as far as the knuckles goes they both look indentical. the inner and outer seals looks the same only difference is the guts. not sure exactly what year they came off of but should be pretty close to mine. i guess my question is are the knuckles the same between manual and add?? i got all the new bearings, spindle with needle bearings, spindle nut, inner and outer seals but have'nt attempted the conversion yet. was hoping someone could help out or have been in this situation. thanks a bunch!! akyotaboy

    Was a PreRunner, now it isn't
    the knuckles are the same, it's the guts as you say that are different. Also the CV's are different at the ends

    The cv on the bottom is the manual hub correct? If that's the case, keep the manual hubs.

    I agree with Steve o. The bottom one is a.d.d. Cv type axle. I have the one ontop. The add axle is beefier but I prefer manual lockers. Thanks for the input though. Akyotaboy!
