yeah don't weld to the knuckle, not a great idea. People do it all the time and most trucks that I have seen that have been welded are more show then go... LOL It isn't something I would trust driving down the freeway.

It is too bad that nobody has made a casting for a high steer knuckle for the newer trucks....

That's what I thought. Next question. Has anyone machined the top the drilled and tapped it?
