Default no welder :(

I'm interested but don't have access to a welder in order to weld the necessary spacer onto the knuckle. would you be willing to do that for an extra fee?

I'm also interested but not sure if I would prefer to just go with new brakes / calipers. Do you have pics of the kit you have available now? Would you be willing to sell the knuckles with welded spacers by themselves like the guy above me asked?

I knew JKS was the only manufacturer. I meant a place that was reasonable. The prices varies from $18 to $36 EACH, plus shipping.
I'll look into the Prime.

21 bucks a pop really doesn't seem that bad. Especially for something from a quality manufacturer like JKS. If you're looking for a WHOLESALE supplier though, you may have luck by just calling them and telling them what you're doing and they might hook you up with a bulk price.

Didn't give much thought about calling them directly. I'll try & see what they say.

I guess the the price on the last set of spacer I got spoiled me. I paid $30 shipped but I got them second hand.

If you really wanted to cut costs for the spacers, hit up a local machine shop that has a laser and have them cut to the dimensions.
It's a simple part.

I made a pattern from the last set of spacers I had in hopes of making my own. Looks like I need to look for a machine shop & welder.
I believe that you were the first WJ conversion buyer.
