Right here.

I have these. They are not a direct drop in replacement. They are steel. They are longer than the stock setup. You will have to get these knuckles for them to work.

Correct. I have the GPM aluminum(blue) universals. Broke those after 30 minutes. The Yeah Racing CVD's are still hold strong and allow for more steering thanks to the TA02 knuckles and the CVD design.

Make it take up the whole screen, take a screen shot, save it as an image, and post it up.

I know there is a way to convert it to an image using Adobe or something like that, but I don't know how to do it.

Here are the front knuckles. I am working with GPM to get some pics of the steering assembly. They haven't been produced yet. I did advise them that we are wanting bearings on the steering shaft and sent them some pics for an example.

I'm really hoping that the steering that they produce isn't just alloy bits that really don't solve the poor design thanks to Tamiya.

I also have sent them an email and images of my busted GPM alloy universals, letting them know that since they were designed for an on-road car, they won't stand up to off-road use.
