Q: Do these arms allow for a straight tie rod to clear the diff cover at full lock?
A: If the front holes in the arms are used, the tie rod can be straight and will clear the differential cover. If the rear holes are used a 1.5" diameter straight tie rod will contact the differential cover at full lock.
Q: Are the factory knuckles cast iron or cast steel? What is the reccomended welding proceedure?
A: The factory knuckles are cast steel. It is still a good idea to preheat and slowly cool the knuckle after welding.
Q: how far forward is the front hole compared to the 1 inch ole or original tie rod location hole?
A: Both holes are moved in towards the center of the axle 1-3/4" and the front hole is moved forward 2-1/4".
Q: I want to use this in a full hydro application, is there another kit for that or this kit is dual purpose?
A: This kit can be used with full hydraulic steering, hydraulic assist, or crossover.
Q: How different is the 03–05 knuckles? Could these be used?
A: We have not tested these on the 2003-2005 knuckles. I am not sure if they would fit or not.
Q: What is the difference between part#B4WK12403 and part#B4WK12340?
A: B4WK12340 is the first rendition of this kit and is more friendly with a full hydraulic steering set up. While B4WK12403 is suited more for crossover applications.
Q: What travel distance lock to lock is the inside hole drilled for if used in a hydraulic assist setup with drag link on inside hole?
A: We put it in our CAD system and it looks like 8" of travel lock to lock!
Q: what size hiems does this allow?
A: 7/8" heims are as big as you can go with this set up
Q: Does the tie rod mount to the closest hole from the axle or the farthest hole? I have it mounted on the farthest hole & my drag link crosses over and is slightly rubbing & I have horrible death wobble. But running the tie rod on the closest hole it hits my track bar mount.
A: There are a few different options you can do to solve these issues. You could stack the drag ling on top of the tie rod on the back hole. You could also bend your drag link to make it clear your drag link.
Q: If the drag link is in the closest hole, and tie rod is in the outer hole, what do you do to the drivers side knuckle to match it up? Looks like it would need some type of spacer to get it up to same level?
A: I'm not sure I fully understand your question, but you would essentially do the same thing to your tie rod on the drivers side knuckle that you did on your passenger side. If you look at part#: B4WK0099 you can see we supply spacers to mount your tie rod and your drag link in that kit.
Q: Does the spacer that goes under the bracket, on top of the original tie rod hole, get welded too?
Q: When will the weld on high steer arms be available for the 06-08 super duty be available
A: We expect these within the next few weeks.
Q: Can these be used on 2013/14 Super 60?
A: No, please look over part number B4WK12435.
Q: If using the hole farthest from the knuckle on a full hydro double ended ram, what cylinder stroke would need to be used?
A: This will depend on too many variables. We recommend mounting the arms and measuring the needed stoke for your setup.
Q: Does this kit work with dually axle applications? I just got the kit from you guys in the mail and it doesn’t look like it will clear my tires. I’m either going to have to modify the bracket or add spacers it looks like. I’m assuming my offset of the dually rim is not the correct amount to clear.
