Q & A

What's in the Box



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.
