I'm looking for some more info and real world experience on these. Seems like there isnt much info on these here yet.

Anyone running/dealt with them or have a good thread link?

I'm using them in a bastardized TTB build:





(more info if you go towards the end of the build thread in my sig)

So far...they're nice, just pretty brute-force. Ball joints installed with a solid fit. Fitment to a Spidertrax unit bearing is a little looser than I'd like, but I'm not worried about it.

I can't use the top-mounted keyed steering arm...I got them because it was the best combination of strength and versatility for the TTB steering I needed to build, so there weren't many options. I didn't want to run a regular spindle/wheel bearings, and I needed to cut & turn for camber correction anyway.

Should have it assembled in the next few weeks and we'll see how it all goes together...

I've considered getting them also, I've asked in a couple threads and found a few builds that use them. Everyone seems to like them.

But, with 2 companies offering hi steer for the factory 99-04 super duty knuckles, it makes them a bit less attractive.


Ideally I'd like to pick up the TG knuckles, 6 lug unit bearings, and wilwoood brake setups for all 4 corners of my buggy...

The benefit that is see is in being able to fabricate your own steering arm locations, like so many do with spidertrax knuckles.

That's the other reason. I'm running Wilwood stuff with the Spidertrax 14" drilled rotors & hats.

And as Wilson mentioned, steering placement is pretty critical on my build.
