Default Replacing rear steer with normal straight axle

Newbie with a question...what I have is a rear steer axle that i want to convert to a "non steer"

Now i understand i need to replace the inner and outer knuckles with AX8020 or the aluminum counterpart. (axle lockouts i understand) and the actual axle shafts. Do I need different bearings or will what i have work on the "no steer" axle. anything else that will bite me in the arse when i tear this apart?

thanks

I have already done that but when i am bound up in the rear it turns the tire. That is why i just want to get rid of the steering part. Thanks tho

yup all you need is the straigh axle adaptor and the axle shafts, the bearings will swap over, its a simple bolt up aplication

Really simple thing to change that will as stated take about 20 mins to sort. Straight axle adapters can be bought from all the major crawler suppliers. Vanquish do some nice straight adapters. Should keep the back end nice and stiff, but will need the straight axles in the axle casings.
