    I ordered this one and it should be here tomorrow. It has the 10 degree angle, setup of 7/8 TRE, and comes with studs.
    The only downside that I can see is that it does not have a cap welded on, like the ORS one does, so you have to reuse your stock cover. I don't think it's a big deal.

    How much did you pay for that one? Where to go to get it?

    I got that same arm. One problem. I told him to tap it for GM TRE, he tapped it for DRE which have a bigger taper than the TRE. So it didn't work completely right.

    I used the Tri-County crossover arm on my D44.....no complaints.

    I ran into that same problem. I used a few washers to put it in and seat it. Seems to be working but I'm not sold yet.

    So it is sitting deeper in the taper than it would had it been the correct taper? That may run into binding problems when you flex that thing out.

    I ran into the same issue when I started putting parts together for my Xover and how I fixed it was I just put 1 Ton ends on the draglink.

    You technically should be putting the correct size end into the taper it was designed for. Any other and you could run into breakage problems down the road. Just a word from someone who's been there. /forums/images/graemlins/smile.gif

    It's not hard to install the correct end and possibly rebuild a draglink so that it's put together correctly.

    Hope this helps....
