    The steering arm and drag link are both listed on ebay:
    drag link
    steering arm
    Place your bids for these on ebay or make me an offer now (NOTE: out of respect for other bidders, I will not pull an item off the auction once some one has bid on it).
    I also have a 10b 8 lug conversion for sale (NOT YET LISTED ON EBAY)... $40 plus S/H.
    Now that I have my d60 I have no use for this stuff anymore /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    It includes the D44 3/4 ton backing plates and rotors (w/ studs) and for an extra $5 I'll throw in the barely used 3/4 ton (2 5/8" piston) brake calipers...
    And just in case you didn't already know...rotors and backing plates are all you need for an 8 lug conversion on a 10b (or 6-lug D44), everything else from the knuckle out is the same... /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    Re: Raised steering arm, drop drag link, 8 lig conversion

    Are you referring to the lockouts or the rotor and hub assembly (held together by the wheel studs)?
    The lockouts are not included (they are no good). Your existing lockouts are the same anyway. All that is needed to convert a 10b to 8-lug are the backing plates and hub/rotor assembly. Your spindles, wheel bearings, stub shafts and lockouts are all the same as a ½ ton and ¾ ton D44. There are two different size brake calipers but the difference is in the piston diameter. They are interchangeable. I’m offering the larger 2 5/8” calipers.
    The backing plates and the hub (inner portion of the hub/rotor assembly) are the most expensive and hardest to come by. The brake calipers and bare rotors (no hub) can all be had for around $20 apiece new (calipers would be newly rebuilt units). There is about a $15 core on each of the brake calipers if you don’t have old ones to turn in.

    If smprider is no longer interested, I am interested in the 8 lug conversion. Got any pics?

    Thanks,

    You wouldn't by any chance have six lug spindles and hubs?

    I threw the hubs away a long time ago, but I do have spindles... $15 + shipping... you'd probably be better off getting them from a junkyard though. All straight axle Chevy 1/2 tons should be the same. /forums/images/graemlins/waytogo.gif

    the 8-lug conversion is sold...
    However, the drag link and steering arm are still up for bid on ebay. Currnet bids as of right now are around $30 apeice.
