    We did a cut and turn on a axle today and now we are looking for high steer arms here in Canada.

    Anyone aware of some local manufacturers???

    Thanks

    I know it's not in Canada but Luke has by far the nicest arms I've seen. Plus it moves the rod behind the axle less prone to damage. Get the GM ends. Talk about some BEEFY stuff.

    With Lukes arms you have to be careful of oil pan clearance. I run them and initially had some issues with my 12H-T.

    A guy in our club has the OTT arms and has slight rubbing issues with the TRE.

    Both are very nice sets, but I like getting that tie rod behind the axle.

    He has issues with the drag link and the TRE. He is using the OTT dropped pitman arm as well. Not sure if it is a axle placement on the springs issue, as I recall he may have flipped the fronts for added wheel base...
