yes, all 05-up ford dana 60's are 35/35 spline. all 05-up front axles are dana 60's.. the rear is a 10.5 sterling.
this has ideal ackerman at 110-112" w/b, the arm does not line up with the stock lower arm. we originally had it that way but it would only allow for a +/- 4.0" backspace with a 17" wheel. since most late model axles use far more backspacing, we redesigned it to clear 5.25" backspacing. zero need to double shear for strength, but, using the tre or heim under the arm provides better clearance with the higher backspace wheels and lowers the steering a nice bit..
I wish I had seen this when I was building my axle.
Since you already worked it out lined up, is it possible to get it that way if I'm not in a hurry? (I figure you don't stock it) What I was thinking was sourcing another axle and making all the changes I want and then swapping it in. So the rig is not down. I have 20" wheels with 4" back space, so no clearance issues.

I guess the stock Ackerman is for longer wheel base. I didn't even think about it. (Mine is about 110") Do you think I would notice an improvement? Can't say I can feel anything funny. Is it just a tire ware issue? I'm sure yours is strong enough. It's just my OCD would not allow that empty arm. LOL. I guess I could machine it off.
wow, sorry I missed this post. are you wanting the kit with the hi steer arm located over the stock arm? we don't stock those arms but can do a set if you want them. we have the 5.25" b/s arm in stock..
we have tested our kit to over 10,800#s of force without failure! :smokin:
ackerman is a tire wearing issue on hard surfaces, by optimizing it there is less scrub when turning in tight circles. (not to be confused with scrub radius)
we will be closed starting fri 17th until mon 27th, no orders will be processed during this time, thanx
