    Ummm could I get some details on that? Is that steering arm home made? How excactly did you put the tie rod over the spring? Its nott he first time I have seen that done. Now I am getting curious. Also what kind of ram is that? Where did you get it? It doesn't look as bulky as most others, does it work as well? Thanks!

    I believe when titanic had his custom springs made he ordered them with the center hole moved forward 1-1/2" otherwisw you would run in to clearance problems with the pitman arm.

    dawson-The steering arms are made out of 1" steel plates, the spacer blocks 1.75" high were made like a dana 60 steering correction block only shorter and I welded these two together along with two 1/2" steel plates on the inside /outside of the steering knuckles so the ram would not push only against the 4 studs holding the pieces to the knuckles. I had Georgia hydraulics make that cylinder for me-I needed one that had a 10" stroke and have attachments like that for the way I wanted to mount it. Steve's right on my springs-they moved my front axle forward almost 2" so I can clear the pitman
