    Give W a call and ask him what you need to bring to get those stock steering arms to high steer arms. Check out the website at www.overthehill4x4.com

    Just back from class! :flipoff2: Yup, Send the two arms, they'll bend 'em and taper the TRE hole from the topside; also send that TRE with the hole in it (make sure it's NOT the drag link end with the hole on it that's for your stock steering stabilizer :p )so they can taper it also ('cause it'll now be mounted upside-down compared to how it used to be mounted anyways...). Not sure if you were going to, but I'd pull the TRE off the tie rod and just send it--otherwise you'll be payin' a lot more for shipping.

    One thing to note (I think I put this in my SOA thread, but not sure) is that my tie rod ended up being TOO LONG :-\ when we tried to set it all back up after the arms were treated and bent. We had to cut off 3/4 inch off EACH end of the tie rod to get the toe-in set up right. Luckily there was just enough thread inside the tie rod at each end so we were able to get away with not having it re-threaded...
