    Hey there,
    I know alot of you are running the crossover steering on your D60's and I was wondering if I could get a few measurements from you. I need the distance on the passenger side steering arm from the center of the Kingpin (Stock cap where the zirk fitting is) to the center of the tapered (or straight) hole where the draglink connects to it. The other one I need would be the thickness of the steel used for the arm. And if you could tell me were the arm came from (Toy Box, ORD, ORU and such) that would be great and if it has the angle (or twist) on the end of it also. Thanks for any and all help.

    See Ya,
    Keith

    Thanks Chaz. The angle should be around 10 deg. I think. Just for future referance. [​IMG]

    Any one else with different measurements/thickness or made from elsewhere. I am just wondering if they are all the same or if some companies have different opinions on the arms. Thanks in advance.

    See Ya,
    Keith
