Big bad-ass steering is sort of our mantra here at Ruffstuff.

We are proud to offer a wide variety of HEAVY DUTY
steering options for KINGPIN 60s!


First, we have stout high-steer arms that use a threaded
pre-load adjuster for those who are going spring-less.




These arms feature GM 1-Ton TRE taper for the tie-rod holes, and a larger reamed hole to
support the high angle drag link ends that allow your axle to travel further
without binding or exceeding the maximum angle of the DLEs.



------------------------------------------------------------

We ALSO have arms that go over a stock spring cap for those folks wanting to keep the pre-load springs.



*Note, these are an earlier design, and come with Standard TRE Reaming in both tie-rod and drag link locations.
This of course is easily reamed out, or drilled for heim joint use.

Both styles of high-steer arms are drilled for after-market 5-stud knuckles,
however they work just fine with factory 4-stud knuckles, the 5th hole is just empty.
-----------------------------------------------------------

Now lets talk about how we can link all the moving pieces together,
We offer the same 3 different styles in both spring and springless:

1- Cross-over - in this kit you would be using factory TRE locations on the knuckles to attach the tie-rod, and it would come with one highsteer arm for the passenger side knuckle to attach the Drag link, as well as a new king pin cap on the driver side knuckle.



-----------------------------------------------------------
2- Cross-over + High-Steer - This comes with high steer arms for both knuckles, and you would connect both the drag link, and the tie-rod to them. Big benefit of moving the tie-rod up, and out of harms way (as long as you have the clearance to oil-pan and frame).



-----------------------------------------------------------
3- High-steer Y-Link - This kit attaches the tie-rod to both high-steer arms, however the drag link connects to a tapered hole on the Tie-rod itself (instead of all the way to the knuckle). This is often a benefit for narrower vehicles with link suspension, that have a shorter pan-hard bar, the shorter drag link helps with steering geometry and bump-steer.



-----------------------------------------------------------

You can find all of these kits, as well as individuals or packs of D60 accessories right here:

Steering angles make a huge difference in how your rig handles on and off-road, done right she'll be a point-n-shoot rig over anything!
