    I can take a closer look but I don't think so, the 2 hole arm has a little bubble on the side for the tie rod hole, since it's offset from the centerline.
    I'd love to be able to say we could just ream y'all another hole but there may not be enough meat there.

    I thought this was supposed to be a "family oriented" site?

    I'll send you my "One Holed D60 arm" and be the gopher if you need a test vehicle. I'd sacrifice my safety for others. /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif I'll even pay for the matching stubbie arm for the other side. /forums/images/graemlins/deal.gif

    One more thing - Do you normally have to change tierod length when going with this setup?

    The tie rod length is a lot different between the stock length and the high steer length, so yes, that will change.
    I'll have to overlay the arms and see how it's going to come out, I don't have a good feel for it without looking at the drawings.

    Send them to me.. Ill look them over... /forums/images/graemlins/wink.gif No copywright Right? /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif

    Actually, thanks for looking into this Stephen. I am a definate supporter of your products, I just would like to find out how I might change what I have as well as buy more products! /forums/images/graemlins/smirk.gif

    Do you know the approximate distance between your steering arms or could some of you post up your tie rod lengths without the ends so I might plan on cutting mine off and re-tapping. Thanks for the help. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    I don't have the length difference handy but I know it's enough that if you had to bore the rod to tap it, you can cut the entire end off and start over, in other words, it's a few inches.

    The tierod should be 49" long (using tierod ends), mine is 48" because I had it made for a centered hi-steer hole arm at the time but should be OK, with the new ORD hi-steer arms the tierod holes are placed outbound farther in atempts to get back some of the Akerman angle.

    It's set up to run the knuckles to the steering stops so you need to make sure they're:
    A: present, lots of them get broken off
    B: set so that the ujoints don't bind (stock setting it fine)
    C: Strong enough. Monitor them, if you break them, get a beefier version, we have some options there that aren't catalogged yet.
