Youngster, you're right.

I can make steering arms.

The other problem I didn't mention is the fact on my spindles - we'll assume they're 35-36 is, there isn't enough room between the axle end and spindle for the bearing.

Looking at this last night with a glass of Chardoney, I think I can mill about .375 off the spindle top king pin lug and a little off the axle end to get the bearing in. I'm not looking forwrd to having to set up the spindles in a mill to cut them. I just don't like milling steelas much as I love milling aluminum. Let the chip fall where they may.

The arms are still on the spindles so I can heat and bend them.

I guess I'll put the Chassis Eng. arms on ebay or look around for some later spindles or step up to a pair of Chassis Eng spindles.
