    I just got my D44 tall steering arm in from Sky today. This thing is HUGE. :D This thing is majorly beefy. I couldn't believe how big this thing was when I took it out of the box. It is a very nice piece of machined metal also. SKY makes some good stuff. I am impressed once again by them. Customer service was excellent and my order shipped the next day. :thumb:

    Thanks SKY

    P.S. If you are installing this arm and want to use bolts the length you need is 2.75".

    I was looking for ARP studs but I talked to Sky about my setup and he said I should probably just continue to use the F911 (Grade 9) bolts that I am using now. So I got some new shorter F911 bolts and installed the new arm earlier tonight.

    I had to get this new tall version steering arm. The spacer is a very bad idea. I learned the hard way. I snapped 2 steering studs the 2nd run out on it and I stretched and bent Grade 9 bolts after about 10 months of hard use.
