Agree.....I tend to be hesitant with Crown myself, but on something that is just a hunk of metal.....no moving joint or anything, idk, might be worth the savings. I'd still look for a used factory, but then I'd probably be willing to give the crown a try as a plan B. If you were running hydro assist or doing King of the Hammers I'd say no.....lol.

Thought the same when I bought Crown D44 front axle shafts, alas I snapped both at the splines within a few minutes of each other.. And I wasn't even pushing it.

f it I'm doing it live. Ordered a crown knuckle. I ain't running the Baja 500 or king of hammers haha. All I need is a perfectly matched knuckle with a smaller drag link hole. I want this done easy and cheap. Stay tuned for my probably okay, potentially disastrous decision. Wish me luck

Got the crown knuckle installed today. Went very smoothly. Drilling out the 7/8" was a little tough but I got it straight and the AEV sleeve went in nice and snug. The Crown Automotive knuckle appears to be an exact match to the stock knuckle so I am happy. Thanks for the input guys!

I can only imagine this is going to be a night and day difference. That joint had so much play with an oversized hole previously.....
