    Does anyone have any experience with sringless D60 arms for x-over and hi-steer? I have found two companies making them so far. These arms do not use the spring in the kingpin set up. This may help remove a possible cause of Death Wobble. I am thinking of upgrading the steering on the M1028, so I am checking these out.

    Here are the links to the two companies:

    I have the WFO high steer arms installed on my 60. They are uber beefy, but since I haven't driven my rig yet it's hard for me to give you an accurate analysis on the DW thang....:)

    The WFO arms do come with shims to fix your deathwobble problem, top notch quality!

    And I have the parts mike arms. they do their job with no complaint but I did have death wobble and after shimming it now wanders kind of bad. Of course my shims are grade 8 washers not exactly precise and I doubt my caster is even close. From what I have heard about WFO they know some stuff about blazers, parts mike is a jeep guy, didn't seem like he knew much about blazers.
