High Steer Arms?

I need a set of high steer arms for my new front end am not sure which ones to go with. I like the price of the sky manufacturing ones at $130 for the pair of standard arms with install kits at $29 a knuckle, you can get them with 1 or 2 holes tapered for gm 1 ton ends. Any other options out there for around that price?

How much did maching, drilling and tapping your knuckle cost? I've got 1 knuckle ready to go and can get another one ready to bolt an arm on for $90 which i can't decide if that's a good deal or not since i still need to find a pass side knuckle.

Re: High Steer Arms?

I got my arms from Tim at Shakerbuilt.

http://www.shakerbuilt.com/
They were 125 for the pair, and he will drill them for what ever taper you want. He also has the studs, ball joints, and spacers.
I used a Waggie D44, and 9 times out of 10 when you spring over a waggie axle you need a 1" spacer under the arm. It was a one stop shop for me.

I had my Knuckles milled, drilled, and tapped at a local machine shop. The guy charged me $100 to do both.

Re: High Steer Arms?

I got hi steer arms from Sky, there the 1" taller ones so you don't need a spacer(Waggie 44). Really happy with them. My buddy Tim did the machining for beer. Man that guy really likes beer.

Re: High Steer Arms?

Yea i still have mine, although my passenger side is the double sided arm and mine are set up for 5/8 heims. Those install kits can get pretty crazy. I dont know if you have an Inland Truck Parts in your area, but i got my conical washers for 2 bucks a peice there, and all other components from napa, probably cost me a total of 30 bucks for both arms, including the heims bolts.
