So my truck has the 22” hubs and knuckles, but I found a 6 in bds lift with fox shocks for 500 can I just swap the hub assembly to the non 22 and everything be okay or do I need to find the 22 knuckles

from their site:
Two knuckles options are available to fit trucks equipped with the standard hub bore as well as the larger hub bore used on truck with factory 22" wheels.
This means you’ll need to find the proper spindles for your setup.

Does the kit come with me spindles? If so, you'll just need non-22 hub assemblies.

Are the outer cv splines the same overall diameter? Also, is the face of the outer cv cup the same?

Looking at part numbers, axle is the same only difference is the knuckle and the wheel bearing, so I’m not sure why it won’t work

I tried that first but can’t seem to find just the 6in spindle and there is a wrecked truck down the road I can buy the wheel bearings off of

Thanks man, I had saw it suggested on older posts but never saw it confirmed it would work
no problem. All of Maxtrac's spindle lifts and lowering kits require non-22" hub assemblies so i did a lot of research on it!
