Great product!

Fabricating steering arms like this would be time consuming and probably cost more; these are great - they fit perfectly and are stout enough to give me confidence that they will not fail in such a critical component as my steering. Thanks, Speedway!
Pros:
  • well-made & stout!
Yes, I recommend this product.

These arms are OK

June 03, 2012
In the description the eye to eye mounting hole spacing is listed as 3.131 inches, but in the Question/Answer section the holes are said to be 3 1/8 inches apart. So this was confusing but I trusted the Answer section and it worked out, they are indeed 3 1/8 inches apart. Should read 3.125 not 3.131. I would have preferred a cast iron set to look more original but these were all I could find. Overall I am happy with them and they arrived in 4 days!! To Canada no less!
Pros:
  • Nice and thick
Yes, I recommend this product.

My T-bucket has "rear-steer" with a 4" dropped tube axle, spring behind; the tie rod and drag link pass under the frame with ease - no interference!

Part number 91632031 is commonly used for rear steer applications. The arm with the two holes is the passenger side arm and the second hole is for the drag link from the steering gear for cross steer from a Vega or 525 steering gear.

What drag link do I use with a tappered pitman arm? I have a chevy manual steering box and pitman arm along with your straignt axle kit with chevy spindles and a flat two hole steering arm for a cross steering system. Do you have a drag link that has a heim and a tierod end? How many degrees can a heim end give me in an upper angle. ie: flat steering arm on a high front gasser to a tierod end at the steering box.

The simplest solution if you have a flat plate steering arm on the spindle with a straight hole and on the steering gear you have a tapered pitman arm is to simply drill the pitman arm straight thru at 5/8” so you will have a Heim end at each end. The Chevy pitman arm will have a 10 degree taper and in our street rod catalog we do not offer a common GM taper to mate with the 5/8” heim end shank. It would require use of a 11/16 GM tie rod end which is of different length than the Ford and an oversize heim such as number 1750128 and the correct length of sleeve. A heim end will bind on the attachment arm if over 15 degrees and we suggest use of a cone spacer to help with the bind such as number 5464110. If the drag link is at a steep angle we suggest spacing it up from the flat plate steering arm.

I'm sorry to say we don't have a drop steering arm for the Chevy spindles like the way we do for Ford spindles. To clear your frame or suspension when you use Chevy spindles you end up needing to modify the arms, or extend your heim away from the steering arm with a spacer. The arms are steel, so they can be bent and welded if need be.
