    Has any one tried the WFO HD d60 steering arms. These are the arms that eliminate the spring on top of the king pin. seems like you would be reshimming alot, just want some feedback from anyone with experience using these or anyone elses best guess opinion too. LINK to the WFO HD arm page.

    I can't say anything for their HD arms, but I run the reversed WFO D60 arms and they are great. I couldn't have anything better to say about the service, help, and quality of the products from WFO. I have their arms, TRE's, Tierod, Draglink, and Pitman arm.

    why not just run their regular kingpin-spring-retaining arms? they are plenty "heavy duty" enough. I seriously doubt you could break one of their arms before you broke a stock knuckle or a tie rod end.

    I was mostly just curious as i have never seen arms for a D60 that eliminated the springs before. I am planning on running the double ended arm with a spring they sell. I am moving the front axle forward and my ORD crossover is going to hit my high steer, so i think moving in behind the diff will work for me.
    thanks for the input, it i salways easier to buy from an unfamiliar company when others have been treated well

    I think they were designed to elminate the death wobble found when running bigger tires. I too am thinking about buying the HD arms as I just dont want to deal with the spring. Mines trailered everywere so I shoudnt have a bunch of wear. I say call up Trevor at WFO and talk to him about it. I met him last weekend and hes a cool guy. Im defently going to him for all my high steer junk and anything else I might need.
