    MTMike gave me a block to go under the steering arm for a D44 to correct draglink angle on my 71 K5 project till I can setup crossover. I don't have th studs, just the block. Do I dare use bolts to attach it? I have a full bolt bin at my disposal but studs are definately more possitive engagement.

    studs are way stronger in that application. Hence I would stay with studs, cause you know losing the steering really sucks

    yeah. I think I may either stay with the stock steering arm or put the block w/ bolts in it for getting in and out of shop to work on it till I can crossover or get the correct steering correction. I may also have some grade 8 all thread laying around that might work.
