    Hey All,

    I just got my raised steering arm brand new from Trail-master and I noticed there is no hardware with it.
    I have not removed mine yet and was wondering if there are special nuts that hold the arm on because I see the 3 holes used to hold the arm in place are tapered ... are the nuts tapered or do shims of some sort fit in-side? Thanks in advance...sorry for the dumb question.

    Just re-use your old mounting hardware. There are cone washers under the nuts. Do a search for getting it off. It's not fun but it does come off. Use a BFH!!!
