Crossover steering ( Straight axle S-10 on 42\'s)

I have a project S-10 on 3/4 ton straight axles with 42's. It will have crossover steering. My right knuckle has boss for arm so I can drill and tap it. The prob is this, I need a steering arm I think this can be a factory part from maybe a dodge?. What is the best place to get one or maybe someone reading this will sell me one the front is a dana 44 Thanks....

On the right side? I think I've seen what youre talking about. Some years Chevys had a boss on the steering knuckle that looked like the one on the left. But not drilled and tapped for the u shaped steering arm. I could swear the one on my Suburban was like that. The original was a 10 bolt corporate. But its been replaced with a Dana 60. There is a guy in Titusville Fla. who does crossover steering. I'll look up his number. He's got tons of front ends. I'll post after Thanksgiving.

Yeah that's what I'm talking about except I already have the knuckle ..... I think however on some non chevy aplication the same casting(knuckle) would be drilled and tapped and have a steering arm on it .... that sreering arm is what I'm after.
