    I have a dana 60 tierod with a normal mount set up. I run coilovers so I don't have leafsprings. I want to use ORD histeer arms to move it up. Will I be able to use my existing tierod? (its solid 6051 t6 aluminum and I paid alot for it)

    yup. the highsteer length is about2 inches, if i remember right, shorter.
    i BELIVE you can call ord and get a bit of money back for your old tie rod, or you can sell it on here.

    Well, I actually bought it from www.randyellisdesign.com so I will likely take it back and have it machined to a shorter length.

    That is what I would do. Randy is pretty cool about that kinda stuff. Just get the length and have him tap it the extra inches then cut it down. Use the RH thread side as it will be easier to tap.
