if the screw on the knuckle is stripped then YES, it does make a difference. convert to CVD's instead of dogbones, and replace any worn out parts, including stub axles and diff outdrives.

Mike...what CVDs did you decide on getting and how are they working for you? I'm thinking about getting those GPMs on ebay.
