    anyone know what the ideal length (sector shaft to tre of steering arm, toward rear of truck) of a steering arm is for x-over? I've got one cheap that I just need to have reamed out if the length is good. it looks like it's directly over the factory tie rod when it's centered.

    I can get the center to center measure off my Ford #1104 drop arm if you want that. I am not sure it is "ideal" though.

    Looks to be about 6.5" from the center of the sector shaft to the center of the TRE hole. Drop on the #1104 arm appears to be roughly 3".

    The 6.5" was measured straight. I didn't do it angled from hole to hole. It is just a flat measurement as if it was a flat piece of metal. Then I measured the drop.
