I think I have made some discoveries with looks like the spindles themselves will swap over.

In 1999/2000 they went to a bolt in type ball joint instead of press in, but otherwise every is the same size, so, you can most likely keep the older control arms and swap over the spindles/brakes, etc.

Also, the mating points for the control arms with the frame appears the same as well. So you could swap over the entire control arms to upgrade to bolt in ball joints, two piston brakes, etc.

I have not proven this yet, but I will be experimenting soon. I've had both right next to each other and I see no reason why it shouldn't work.

So, good cheap upgrade for the 2wd guys if this proves to work. I'll keep ya'll posted!
