    Bare knuckles are $259 each, spindle stud kits are $18.00 per side (6 studs), High Steer arms are $300 for the pair, and the studs for the top of the knuckle are $10.00 each. The $10.00 studs are GM studs with the larger center section to index the arm tight before you even put the tapered nut on it.

    Is it considered bling if it's pretty AND works? If so.......Let the Bling run free!

    All our crossover or high steer arms are now like the one in the pic, 5 holes for the knuckle and 2 holes in the front of the RH arm, one for the tierod, one for the draglink. If you don't have Dedenbear knuckles, you just don't use the 5th hole.

    But can you get the knuckles with 4 studs, meaning that I already have the cross-over setup with 4 studs.

    The 4 holes in the arm you have line up with 4 of the 5 studs in the new knuckle. You just don't install the 5th stud in the knuckle.

    OK, 4 of the holes are the stock pattern, you just don't use the 5th hole unless you have the Dedenbear knuckles.

    If you don't want the tie rod arm, you our we could cut it off, but they're all cast with the arm on there to start with.

    you put your x-over arms up for sale for almost what new cost then you buy new ones. or maybe stephen will cut you a deal for if you want to go to the DB knuckles. there would be little point going to the DB knuckles and not use the 5th stud.
    im thinking about this setup, but at just over a grand with shipping it will be a while before i decide if im going to do it or not.

    Someday i will get them, I got one of the early runs when Stephen added the 5th hole so my ORD arms will work fine.

    Dedenbear does include the dimensions for the 5th hole so as long as the shape of your arm allows it, you can drill the new hole yourself if you want. If you have one of our arms, we can put the 5th hole in it here if you want, it'll run about $20.00 altogether but it's not a huge deal to do it.

    Yeah, I'd kind of aimed that at the guys above, and to make it known that we can do it.
