The other one was okay so I will save as a replacement in the future if needed. I didn't want to have to tear everything apart to replace a used bearing after I beat the it out of the knuckle.

Now for an alignment.

I guess you missed the thread where I talk about just buying the new kunckles and save the hassle of breaking a bolt then have to go buy the kunckles.
