Dana 60 HDA Double Arm High Steer Set
Dana 60 Heavy Duty Double Adjustable Double Arms.
These steering arms are our most popular selling Dana 60 steering arms. We made the first set of these arms in 1999 for the Dana 60 front axle we swapped into our 89 Chevy. These steering arms are designed to put the tie-rod behind the axle, and the draglink across the front of the axle. This will allow you to move your axle forward without having any interference with the pitman arm and the tie-rod. These arms work great in Jeep CJ and YJ applications, as well as full size Chevy trucks, Toyota mini trucks, and Toyota FJ-40 60 swaps.
These arms have the fifth hole machined into them to work with Reid knuckles, but still fit stock knuckles. The rear facing driver's side arm has been reworked to finally get all 5 studs on a Reid knuckle.
This HDA version has an adjustable upper set screw for pre-loading the kingpin. The spring that is used from the factory can contribute to "death wobble" when it deflects. With the HDA arms, the spring is removed and replaced by a washer and set screw. This will allow you to tighten your knuckle pre-load at any time as the kingpin bushing wears out. They arms will also work well with Reid bronze upper bushings.
The arms can be ordered 3 different ways. We can taper for chevy tie-rod and draglink ends, leave straight 5/8" holes for heim joints, or straight 3/4 holes for heim joints. We can also do whatever you want if you call in.. The arms with tapered holes have the Chevy tie-rod end taper behind the axle, and a Chevy draglink end taper in the front end of the double arm. Remember, the Chevy draglink ends have a slightly larger shank diameter and taper, allowing them to achieve more angle.
The arms do NOT come with studs and nuts. Be sure to select the correct part above to get the ARP studs and nuts if necessary. If you have a Chevy or Dodge 60 with the stock studs and tapered nuts on the driver's side, you can re-use those by drilling the arm to 17/32". You will still need four studs and tapered nuts for the passenger's side. Scroll down to see the related items to purchase just four ARP studs and tapered nuts.
The arms are clear zinced to help fight off corrosion.
