These steering arms are designed for custom steering applications where it is necessary to move the tie-rod to the rear of the axle. This is often necessary on such vehicles as Chevy trucks and Jeeps where the steering box location has not been moved forward. In these applications, interference can occur using a standard high-steer setup.Some applications where thesearms fit great are:Jeep CJ, Jeep YJ,73-87 Chevy, or Toyotamini truck.
These arms fit kingpin style Dana 60 front axles. They are designed to slip over the existing sheetmetal kingpin caps. They are also designed to be held down with studs and tapered nuts. We do NOT suggest using bolts. If your axle already has 4 studs and tapered nuts holding the factory drivers side steering arm down, you may re-use those. In that case, you will only need to purchase one stud kit for the passenger side.
The tie-rod holes are tapered to fit large Chevy tie-rod ends. (ES2234R, ES2233L, ES2010L, ES2010R, EX2234R, EX2234L) The draglink hole is tapered to fit large, double pivot, Chevy draglink ends. (ES2026R, ES2027L, ES2027R)A 10 degree angle is also machined into the end of the arms.
Remember, you will need two factory sheet metal kingpin caps. Be sure to purchase an extra cap if you are removing a factory steering arm on the drivers side.
WARNING:This is a custom set-up. The arms will fit both high pinion and low pinion applications. However, they may interfere with some factory shock locations, as well as after market deep-dish oil pans. If your front leaf springs are arched 8" or more, the tie-rod may not clear the leaf springs. Also, they willNOTclear high offset wheels, like the Hummer H1 wheels.
