BUILDER'S TIP

Steering arms of Ford spindles on a dropped axle will need slight modification on nearly every car. The arms will normally need to be heated and bent downward so the tie rod will clear the frame, engine pulleys, radius rods, etc. NOTE: use a rosebud tip on the torch. Don't overheat, and let the arm cool slowly. Have it Magnafluxed when done! It is important to keep the centers of the kingpin and the tie rod holes parallel.
