I have "Parts Mike" steering arms on my rig. There are good arms. You can probably get a better price through Roggy Enterprises though. They both get their arms from the same supplier (Mike Stump). Roggy Ent can also make custom arms for special applications. 530-626-9451

Having just been there and done that, be sure you take into account any "twist" you may want in the arm when you order it. My PM arms were flat, and there wasn't much travel left in the draglink heim at the arm. I had Roggy make a set with 10 degrees of twist. The twist eliminates the slope of the knuckle top. Even with TREs you should figure it out, or you could be maxing out your rod ends at full travel. The cost for twisting them is minimal. Both Roggy and PM have been very fair and pleasant to deal with.

I talked to them (Chris) on the phone and they seemed pretty cool. I am planning on running the All-Pro Toyota/Dana 44 hybrid and I would like to use normal tie-rod ends instead of hiem joints. So... I started looking around on the 'net and I figured I would go with Bob Roggy's arms when I ran across SRC's website. I will probably go with them since they are local and I can deal with them in person. I am in New Jersey, and as far as I can tell this is the only 4WD oriented place within a hundred mile radius. <IMG SRC="smilies/mad.gif" border="0"> The guys at SRC are actually machinists by trade, they just happen to wheel and they started making things for their rigs and people were interested in what they had so they started selling parts. They don't have a "kit", they'll work with you and make up whatever you want to order.

My dana 44 was rebuilt almost exclusively with stuff from parts mike. His customer service is EXCELLENT and he really goes the extra mile to make sure everything is right.

My histeer arms from him were bent 15 degrees and I used a 1/2" spacer so that my tie rod would clear my springs.

Yeah, they seemed like decent dudes, I'm just hesitant since I've never talked to anybody who has actually used their stuff yet. Let me know how it works out for ya. Thanks.

I will be sure to let everyone know how things turn out. I would probably go with Bob Roggy's arms if SRC wasn't local. I would be hesitant to give my credit card number to a company I knew nothing about. For the record, some guys in my local club (Bergen County 4WD) have bought steering components from SRC and wheeled with these guys and said that they are happy with the products.
