There you will find Sky Manufacturing's new Ball Joint Dana 60 Ford Over the Spring Steering Conversion. We machine your knuckle for a keyed 5 stud steering arm. This 5 stud keyed system is the strongest bolt on system we have encountered. We use our Chrome moly 9/16ths Dana 44 studs and conical washers. Kit will correct for a 7 inch lift with stock pit man arm.
Steering Arm Info:
Our steering arms are CNC machined out of ASTM A572 Grade 50 steel. We previously have used 1018 steel, but switched to a more rigid material (A572). Grade 50 is a very strong low allow steel that fulfills our exceptionally high strength requirements, and is particularly strong for applications in which it is riveted or bolted. ASTM A572 Grade 50 is considered a "workhorse" grade and is widely used in many applications. Steel mills produce channel and heavy beams with Grade 50. It is commonly used in structural applications, heavy construction equipment, building structures, heavy duty anchoring systems, boom sections, structural steel shapes, and applications that require high strength per weight ratio.
*Tensile strength: 65,000 psi
*Yield strength: 50,000 psi
REID Dana 60 Knuckles:
The strongest Dana 60 knuckles on the market, cast from high strength ductile iron and beefed up with extra material and ribbing. 100% interchangeable with a Ford Chevy Dodge kingpin knuckle, except uses stronger Chevy tie rod ends. 5 holes to accept 5 stud arms (4 bolt arms still fit).
Cast in steering stop eliminates bent stop bolts. Ford Knuckles accept one-ton Ford brakes with no modifications required. Tie rod holes can be drilled to accept 3/4" rod end. Powder coated bright orange for long lasting looks, fully machined and ready for installation!
