I'm swapping in a Dana 60 (GM kingpin) and I'd like to stretch the front as much as I can without moving the steering box.
Planning on H1 wheels and a high steer. I'll be going PSC assist eventually as well.
What steering arms will work with the H1 wheels in stock form? Can I realistically do a behind the axle tie rod?
How far can I move the front axle forward? I'm going with ORI struts so spring buckets are a non issue.
What's the best trac bar frame side mount to use?
Thanks in advance!
H1 rims on SRW hubs without a small spacer means you have to get high steer arms that are angled in and chopping off your OEM steering arms as they will rub or hit and bind.
You can run them behind but again they need to be angled arms, but watch out behind axle steering and a linked axle it gets busy back there.
Any plans on hydro assist or full hydro? Now is the time to plan for the stretch and full hydro, you can always swap in a Astro van box for forward steering as a temp ( year or so ) till you go full hydro later on.
Can't wait to see this done, I got some rocks that need testing done to them lol.
