    I stopped by Frisbie's place and saw a set of your High steer arms and by far, they are the best I have seen to date. Nice welds on the caps too! I'm still saving for a set. After all that bawling, I still don't have the money for a set! /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif I might have to make a special trip out to see that CNC machine of yours. Do you give shop tours? /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    I think there the best out there for our applications and I'm not just saying that because he is an advertiser here, they are the only ones I have seen that have an offset tierod mounting point to try and get back some of the akerman angle. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    Absolutely great setup! My truck handles like a Vette! Well, except for the unbalanced 38" Swampers, rough front springs, and slightly warped driveshafts that make the truck bounce like crazy. Wait, what was my point? /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif

    i love hearing good things about those arms. i ordered mine 2 days ago along w/ a bunch of other shat.

    if they look 1/2 as good in person as they do in the picture i will be a happy camper. (i bet they look better in person though) /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    You didn't hear? Steve Frisbie just bought a $200,000 CNC Milling Machine and will be building Doublers and ORD Copied Steering arms real soon... Bah! Gotya didn't I? Not true....

    Of course he buys parts from ORD. He has purchased many parts from Watson in the past. It's the "dont step on each others toes" mentality that good Fabricators have. Steve doesn't build any products in Stephen's product line and vice-versa! /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    There's usually a pretty good portion of "massive time and effort invested to get one part built for my truck when I could just buy it and be done" thrown in too. That's the reason we sell Doublers to guys that own machine shops, unless they just want to mess with the project, it's much more efficient to just take a single side job at the shop rate and order the kit than to spend a bunch of time figuring out how to build it and still getting the unpolished early production version.
