Q & A

What's in the Box

Clearance!!

 NO WARRANTY, NO RETURNS ON GARAGE SALE ITEMS

These are the steering arms you need to replace your damaged stock arms, or for street rod use where the drop will help you obtain necessary tie rod clearance.

  • Arms have a 1-3/4" drop
  • Heavy cast steel with sufficient radius to clear most spindle bosses
  • Pre-threaded mounting holes
  • Will accept tapered tie rod ends or spherical rod ends

NOTE: This steering arm is to only be used with a spring-over front axle and should not be used with a spring-behind front axle assembly. Flat plate arms are required when using a spring-behind front axle.

Notes

  1. When using these on a 48” wide axle, you will need a tie rod measuring 46” eye-to-eye.
  2. These steering arms are popular on Model T - 1934 Fords with 4" dropped axles and 4-bar or hairpin radius rod suspensions. These are also suitable to replace damaged stock arms on 1937-1948 Ford spindles.

Specs

  • 3-3/8” center-to-center mounting holes
  • Designed to accept 11/16” Ford tapered tie rod ends

  • Tie rod hole can be drilled to 5/8” for use with spherical rod ends
  • Overall length of short arm is approximately 8”
  • Short arm length from front mounting hole to center of tie rod hole is approximately 6-7/8”

The 1 ¾” dropped arms work with most 4” dropped axles running split wishbones. There are several variations in height of the wishbones from 28 and up but with the Model A’s smaller wishbones these arms should put the tie rod just above the wishbones. The arms are double tapered so the tie rod/drag link can go on top or the bottom of the arms.

These are dropped steering arms for the 37-48 Ford spindles and designed to be used with our 4” dropped axles in a spring over application to lower the tie rod for the necessary clearance. On the disc brake kits for the spindle in question and assuming you have the bolt on steering arms we offer several kits. We offer an economy disc brake kit only available in the 5 on 4 ¾ pattern under part number 91031942. We offer brake kit number 91031945 which is our premium kit and available in the 5 on 4 ½ pattern or 91031946 in the 5 on 4 ¾ pattern. If wanting a more advanced kit we also offer a Wilwood kit with aluminum hub and 2 or 4 piston calipers. Numbers for these would be 8351401501 or 83514011013.

1937-48 Ford Steering Arms, 1-3/4 Inch Drop
(Part #7022754)
                        

These 1-3/4" drop forged steel steering arms are popular on Model T - 1934 Fords with 4" dropped axles and four-bar or hairpin radius rod suspensions. Will attach to '37-'48 Ford spindles and accept 11/16" Ford "tapered" tie rod ends (both the top and bottom are tapered to allow tie rods to mount above or below arm as needed). You can drill-through with a 5/8" bit to use spherical rod ends.

Use a 46" eye-to-eye tie rod link when used with a 48" wide axle with Ford spindles.
