The tapers on the ball joints are differant, you have to use all b2200 brake parts, an adapter for the brake line (differant thread) and they have to used right on left and left on right. Let me see if i can find the thread, there is more to it than this.

There is more to it youhave to use B2200 ball joints and drill one new hole for the upper andtwo for the lower. In addition I beleive you have to use the REPU steering arm instead of the B series for correct geometry. Ifthat is the case I think you are out of luck as the B series drop spindles have cast steering arms so when you swap them side to side the steering geometry may be off. I have no idea if using stock B series spindles raise or lower as compared to the repu or if you gain or lose camber. Hope this helps.

Every b2200 drop spindle i've seen has the steering arm cast into the upright so i agree with Paul. But if you converted REPU to a front steer then you're back to the steering geometry question. And if you convert it to front steer you might as well use a rack and pinion instead of the box.....
