    There were some complaints about the tie rod placement on PBB, too. I would guess that many will go with hi-steer, maybe?

    Now how many people have actually broken their dana 60 knuckles though? I would be surprised if there was any market fore these at all. But they are beefy!

    A ton of people on Pirate have. Especially after going high steer. Since the top of the knuckle is rather week and if you try to transmit all that twisting force of the high steer arm they go snappy snappy.

    they might have had a better shot if they improved the design, instead of just beefing up the original.

    High steer combined with hyrdo steer can definately break them. Especially the Ford version which is thinner.

    Also, they did change the design AND beef it up... It's not real obvious, but they increased some radiuses and eliminated some pockets. You can't change it too much and have it still work with the other stock stuff...
