    Are the OEM studs on a Ford HP60 the same as a GM 60? I need to know if I can re-use the studs for the x-over or if I need to order the GM ones for the ORD arm. Thanks.

    You'll have to check that one out yourself, we don't have a housing here we can take apart. They need to be about 2 3/4" long and the shank dia needs to be .529 or so. The GM's have a larger shank than the threads.

    OK, I'll tear it apart and measure, then report my findings back here. I have some new GM studs I'm putting on some Dedenbears for a customer that I can use for comparison.

    Just checked yesterday and confirmed that the Ford Dana 60 OEM studs on the '78-79's that hold the steering arm on are dimensionally the same as the GM studs. Same length, same threads, same shoulder diameter.

    Horay for ford doing one more thing right! Sure makes that 78-79 D60 high pinion pretty attractive doesn't it?
