Why are chevy D44 and d60 high steer arms different lengths?

This may seem silly, but Ive never seen an answear...I am refering to the over length from the ball joint to the TRE..the D44 is like 5"+ and the D60 is 8"+.... WHY?Are they different because of the stock chevy stuff and the way they bolt up under there original pickup set up and they required a different "throw" or something?....Im just curious and no one can answear it that I have asked outside of PBB...THANKS

Ok, so it has to do in part w/ the actual turning radius? I asked it in the jeep section because its a pain to match these axles to a jeep w/ leafs and still maintain full lock to lock and no binding..I guess you could get a custom d60 HS arms cut/machined to d44 length ( or close to if you wanted)..If not I would have to move the axle back so my TRE/ DRaglink wouldnt bind or relocat the box another 2"( or so ) on te front of the frame...I was just curious, but it makes sense know that you said it..
