From our Website:
"Current High steer arms are single shear in design, and prone to failure under extreme circumstances due to bolt failures on the steering linkages. This design overcomes that problem by utilizing a keyway two-piece double-shear design that bolts together by using three Gr. 8 bolts.
Common aftermarket high steer arms utilize factory tapered tie-rod ends for steering ends. The new design uses chromoly heim joints / rod ends coupled with high misalignment spacers to achieve a greater degree of misalignment needed in extreme circumstances of suspension travel.
Added features are the counter bores that allow the custom high misalignment spacers to seat .188” into each side of the arm to combat shearing forces on the bolts, while using the clamping forces of the bolts to locate the joints. This feature also allows safe operation even in the event that a bolt is lost or broken.
Included in Kit:
2 Double Shear high steer Arms with Grease Zerk and clamping bolt
8 200,000 psi CrMo ARP high strength studs
8 Custom machined self centering enclosed nuts
2 Kingpin spring rebuild kits
8 3/4" to 5/8" High Misalignment spacers (propriatary to application)
2 RH QA1 XMR-12 CrMo rod ends & Jam nuts
2 LH QA1 XMR-12 CrMo rod ends & Jam nuts
Note: These arms are NOT compatible with tie rod ends and MUST be used in conjunction with the joints and spacers provided in kit. PATENT PENDING"

If you had the Dedenbear setup, you would have my money today. I like this idea a lot.
All Double shear arms from Ballistic now feature the Reid racing / Dedenbear 5th stud capability, without weakening the design or changing the overall look... at no added cost. Thanks for the support!
