D44 double shear high steer arms.

has anyone ever seen a double shear high steer arm for a dana 44? what I was thinking is a high steer arm that places the tie rod hole directly over the factory hole the running a heim between them. that way your leverage is being distributed through out the knuckle, not just coming from above the ball joints, which I would imagine puts a lot of stress on parts.

other than leaf spring clearance does anyone see a problem with this? I have access to a water jet so i think I'm going to give it a shot.

I've seen a few setups like that.. basically using a long bolt and spacers between the stock arm and the high steer arm.

There are also high steer arms with a second bracket bolted to the top that allow a double sheer setup without dropping the steering linkage below the high steer arm.

Ive seen those for a 60, but do they make them for a 44?

Not sure.. I don't see why they wouldn't. The arms are a little smaller but I think there's still enough room.

FWIW - I'd rather go with the second option. What's the point of going high steer if you're not really going high steer? And going psuedo high steer just to do a double sheer would be an expensive endeavor.
