The holes were not the right size,the edges were not clean cut and the look of the parts I new these were not going on my T BUCKET so I returned them and purchased speed way. Never going back again THANKS speed way. FRED

Flat tie rod steering arms to the rescue

August 13, 2012
Changing an old tube axle with drum brakes to disc. Conversion went great, but found out original steering arms did not fit with the new spindles/rotor. Ordered the flat arms and they bolted right up. Also had to change the tie rod from ball joints to heim joints.
Yes, I recommend this product.

The holes for attaching to the spindle are 7/16" and the hole for the heim joint is 5/8". A 5/8" heim joint is typically used with these steering arms.

I'm wondering if I can used these on a 57 Chevy truck axle? My plan is to use rack and pinion between the axle and the front of the frame. I see that it's 1.8" shorter than the ones meant for trucks. I was hoping to not have to push my axle any farther forward than I have too.

These are intended for '49 to '54 Chevy car spindles. The mounting holes are 3.175" from center to center. If that matches your spindle then you could possibly use them on your pickup.
