    Anyone using these high steer arms??? They look really nice, the D60's are $150 each and they are already raised up for increased tie rod clearance. I think these are what I am going to use on my high steer/crossover setup.http://www.extremegearoffroad.com

    I was thinking about the avalanche arms whenever I get the around or the money too go crossover, but I keep reading over on the PBB about there arms bending /forums/images/graemlins/shocked.gif /forums/images/graemlins/eek.gifSo I've been searching for other arms and I like the way those look ie.

    dude i have these. These are pricey. Make sure its what you want. They did work great as far as clearance. But they DO NOT have a taper for kingpin inclination, so you lose a bit there. If you go heims with high misalignment spacers you would be ret to go.

    Although im not and have no issues yet, although i am flex challenged.

    I thought I read a thread about the Avalanche arms not being very strong and them not doing anything about replacing or fixing the problem. /forums/images/graemlins/confused.gif

    Yeah I've read about 2 guys on PBB having prolbems with their arms and avalanche didn't stand behind their product /forums/images/graemlins/mad.gif /forums/images/graemlins/mad.gif I wonder if Steve has had any problems out of his arms yet, looks like he wheels his pretty hard from the pics I've seen on here he has posted in the past /forums/images/graemlins/confused.gif

    I heard that the d44 arms arm the ones that people have bent up, nit the d60's.

    I was hoping that the d60 are from Extreme were like the yota's; guess I gotta e-mail them back to see.

    <font color="green"> If the 60 arms have the raised part like the yota ones then I will be seriously considering them. Group purchase, anyone? /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif </font color>
