question at bottom story at top. Well CEE hit an all time low for standards this weekend. It apears close enough is a long way from home. I went for a shakedown on the D60 (dual lockers=wow/forums/images/graemlins/eek.gif). I then managed to pop a DL end out of the socket (due to the crappy stock steering design and a little more flex than the already worn DL wanted). To make things better I had a cutom one off, temporary, link with a captured end for the stock GM pitman arm and one adjustable end for the stock Dodge arm on my 60. Well the captured end blew. I had no spare as this was a one off not a two off design. A little trail fix (read 9/16" bolt through the DL end and pitman arm and then a trailer ride to my house-> thanx rob /forums/images/graemlins/bow.gif) I made it home. (should have called the towing co. guys we pulled out of the friggin mud earlier but that is another story). I now need x-over. I am gonna call ORD and get the arms. I like fabbing my own stuff and will make a drop draglink out of 1.5" .250 wall DOM. I need to know how much the drop is for the DL. A quick center to center measurment all I need. I have about 4.5" of lift and a kink pin (duh) Dana 60. I am thinking 3" or so will work well. Any help is appreciated. Thanx in advance /forums/images/graemlins/waytogo.gif Also has anybody had any issues with bending a drop DL? Should I plate gusset it or not?
