    The arm on the passenger side knuckle not the pitman arm. And why did you use them for it strenght, cost. If I use 2 arms for hysteer can I cut off the old ones or leave them there. Thanks for your input Ryan.

    I got both of my arms from a guy named Steve who makes them on the side. PAid $145 for both arms and they look real good. they have the angle ground into them with the GM taper. He has a web page but I cant remember.

    Re: Who\'s arm did you use for your crossover?

    I bought mine from ORD. When I talked to Watson, he told me I had an option of buying a second arm for the left side, then using the standard ORD arm on the right side, then use a tierod with a hole for the draglink. Not real sure if this is the good setup or not. I originally had planned on buying the Avalanche arm, but Stephen talked me into buying his. He is a good salesman! /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif

    [/ QUOTE ] Isn't that the arm that twists the first time that you go wheeling, and that Avalanche won't warranty? /forums/images/graemlins/angryfire.gif Stephen stands behind the stuff that he sells, so you made a great choice! /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    The D44 Avalanche arm is the one that I personally bent the first time out. The D60 version seems to work just fine. I have heard of no problems with the 60 version.

    I wouldn't buy one from them for any axle, just based on their response to customers that bent the 44 version. /forums/images/graemlins/angryfire.gif I just have a problem doing busniess with folks that won't stand behind their junk. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif
