I need some info on making high clearance crossover steering arms at home. I searched and found nothing other than the double arm standard setup. I have seen a couple in the past that were done at home and they looked good. Can someone post some pics and a description of how to get it done? A link to a post with the info would be just as good.
Thanks,
Aaron

Yeah David makes them I am just too broke to buy them. I may end up jumping right into it. Hopefully I can get it right the first time.

ok - I will spillt he beans since I am such a nice guy <IMG SRC="smilies/biggrin.gif" border="0"> <IMG SRC="smilies/biggrin.gif" border="0"> <IMG SRC="smilies/biggrin.gif" border="0">

If you wanna make a cheap set of crossover arms in high steering form...

1. Cut off the protruding stock arm pieces
2. Mill the top of the arm flat
3. Use a solid piece of steel off the top of the arm
4. Decide if you want to use stock cone seats or straight bolts - drill the soolid steem bar as needed.
5. Drill for heims or taper for TRE.
DONE <IMG SRC="smilies/glasses.gif" border="0">

But you better ber DAMN sure you know what you are doing when you weld that arm to the steel stock because a crappy welder (the machine) or a crappy welder (the person) is responsible for people's LIVES...

You've see my arms, and I have pics on my site. Anyone can physically make the parts necessary with a little patience, it is the welding that matters most.

Cone washers for sure! Straight bolts just do not have the ability to keep tight like the cone washers do - also too much tolerance in the bolt/hole for me to feel safe about it.

Go to a good auto parts store and get "Dorman drive flange wedges", almost any diameter you want in an easy to find taper.
