Steering kits are built to order and take up to 5 days to build.
Due to confusion, this does not include weekends and other lead times noted on the web site.
Ball Joint Dana 60 Ford (Over the Spring) Steering Conversion for Chevy Solid Axle Conversion trucks using the 93-97 Ford Ball Joint Dana 60, 99-04 Dana 60 or Dana 50 Ford Ball joint Super Duty axle.
We do not have knuckles machined and in stock to trade out. Due to 92-97 Ford 60's having multiple brake caliper mounts (3 different options) over a 5 year stretch we will require yours to make sure you receive the correct parts.
In order to build this kit, we machine your knuckle for a keyed 5 stud steering arm.
This 5 stud keyed system is the strongest bolt on system we have encountered.
We use our Chrome moly 9/16ths Dana 44 studs and conical washers.
Kit can only be used with 6 inch and larger lifts.
Kit includes 4 relief drop pit man arm for the Chevy IFS box, new adjustable drag link with 1 ton tie rod ends, 5 stud billet steel steering arm, 5 studs, conical washers, nuts and machine work to your knuckle. Pit man arm is a 4 spline relief arm, if you have a 3 relief sector shaft you will need to either swap the steering box or sector shaft to a 4 spline.
**We also offer a 1.5" taller version of this arm. These taller arms are designed for those running leaf packs that are 3.75" or thicker.**
1. Order the this kit on our web site.
2. Package up your knuckle(s) without steering arms or steering arm studs.
3. Clearly mark the box with your order number, full name and phone number.
4. Mail your knuckle to:
3580 Marcola Rd.

5. We will machine it, pack the rest of your kit, and mail it back to you!
***Our knuckle machining shop only operates Monday through Thursday. No knuckle machining happens on Friday, Saturday or Sunday. If your knuckle arrives to us on Thursday afternoon, it will not be ready to ship until Wednesday of the following week, depending on current lead time***
Steering Arm Info:
Our steering arms are CNC machined out of ASTM A572 Grade 50 steel. We previously have used 1018 steel, but switched to a more rigid material (A572). Grade 50 is a very strong low allow steel that fulfills our exceptionally high strength requirements, and is particularly strong for applications in which it is riveted or bolted. ASTM A572 Grade 50 is considered a "workhorse" grade and is widely used in many applications. Steel mills produce channel and heavy beams with Grade 50. It is commonly used in structural applications, heavy construction equipment, building structures, heavy duty anchoring systems, boom sections, structural steel shapes, and applications that require high strength per weight ratio.
