Figure i would bump this instead of throwing up a new thread.
What have you guys with SD Swaps done for drag link/ track bar and bracket?
Have to get new frame side bracket? Custom track bar? Thanks for any help

I sent the knuckles off to be machined for high steer, everything is custom from there, but it's pretty simple actually. Just make a straight tie rod with 7/8" rod ends, do the same with the drag link. The track bar bracket, on the axle end, is part of the artec truss.

Just make sure that the drag link and track bar are at the same angle and attempt to make them as close to equal length as possible. I say "as close to" because it's impossible to package it if you make the equal length. You just don't have the space to do it.

I won't be using the artec kit. Looking for recommendations on a front trackbar bracket for sd d60

Alright guys, I need some more wisdom from you guys.
I have the Currie f450 unit bearings. They use a 35 spline stub shaft.
So I ordered some nitro 35 spline stub shafts. Just one problem, they don't have the cut on the splines for the snap ring to fit.
Is there a different way to put them in?
Also, anyone know of a superduty rotor in 8x6.5?!
Thanks for any help.
