    If you are looking for a custom steering setup for a 44 or 60 front axle, check out my web page. www.wfoconcepts.com. I have sold parts to quite a few people on the board. My custom dana 60 double arms are a great choice for people who are moving their axle forward. Not to mention, I make custom length draglink and tierod assemblies that do not use weld in inserts. They are drilled and tapped DOM. Trevor, WFO, AUBURN CA.

    I highly recommend using Trevor for any of your parts needs for steering! I have his reversed D60 arms, tierod, and draglink. The prices are good, and the parts quality and customer servise is 2nd to none! I think I ordered my custom length draglink on Tuesday and it was at my house on Friday!!!

    another recommendation for WFO. I have his double arms and they are high quality stuff to say the least. Wouldn't hesitate to buy from him again... and if he makes toyota arms, I probably will. /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    Do you have your double arms installed? If so, do you have your shock mounts moved? Any pics of where/how you did them?

    double arms are installed, but my tie rod is still in the stock position. I'm in the process of doing a 52" spring swap which will include getting rid of my zero rates (need to, for clearance for the tierod), relocating the shocks, longer brake lines, lim straps, bump stops and all that other good stuff. I got one of the cheap shock hoop kits from BTF that they have on sale right now. Think they are $64.99 or something. In any case, I will be taking tons of pics of the whole process so other newbs can follow along. Things are sorta slow right now because I have been changing jobs and taking care of wedding arrangements and all that crap. This winter, things will get done a lot faster. In the meantime, I just run my DT8000s in the standard ford-shock-tower location. I have to run them upside down so the double arm doesnt hit the shock body, but other than that all is good.

    anyway, almost hijacked the thread for a second there... lets get back to talking about WFO and how Trevor kicks azz. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif /forums/images/graemlins/laugh.gif

    I have my 52's installed w/ zero rates and the tie rod on there... It will clear. Haven't wheeled (driven) it yet, may rub a little at full droop but I don't think it is going to be much of an issue.

    maybe my tie rod is thicker or something. I dunno... all I know is when I got the arms installed I layed a flat piece of wood across them to see where the tie rod would go and it was VERY close to the leaf springs... we're talking like 1/8" of something. Thats with my rancho 4" lift springs and zero rates. I am re-building new 52" packs that have one extra leaf in them, but no zero rate, oughta work out better with respect to clearance. I dont really need the zero rates anyway, my perches are redrilled for axle relocation, all the ZRs were doing is providing a bit of lift.

    I'll get around to it. The engineers who designed them say "upside down" mounting is fine btw. In any case, I have 2 BBCS shocks on the way that will being going up front before I drive the thing again.

    supersize75k5 bought the crossover from trevor a while back for his 60, he shipped it the same day shawn ordered it! And the price was amazing, the only thing that could make it have more bling is chrome!


    I'll be shopping there for my x-over /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif
