Dana 60 steering arms/TRE's

Was just wondering what steering arms everyone is using on there D60's? I will be using TRE's so I think I need the kind that have the angle milled into them, correct? For now I think I am just gonna run X-over with the tie rod in the factory location to save some money. Maybe just upgrade the actual tie rod though.

Also what TRE's are the best? Too many numbers to try to deciper through!!

Ordered all my crossover parts from Offroaddesign, including TREs and the beefy draglink. Read through my M880 project page to see the parts. That tie rod is ubber BEEFY!!!!!!

my cheap arms

I paid $47 each for my dana 60 kingppin style high steer arms which came with the caps and grease zerks too! I know that price sounds way too cheap but they are very beefy about 1" thick and I have been abusing them on Rusty for over 6 months now. The downside to these arms is they do not have the fancy angle cut into the end but you could grind that in yourself if you wished. The website is www.kozoffroad.com

I have OTT arms, but they are short and I'm hoping to run my hydro ram behind the axle.

Man, I don't know about that. If you spend even $150 on an arm and another $80 on TRE's there is no way that you could spend $170 bucks on a stick of DOM and some inserts!! I just need to know what arm and what number for the TRE's (just want the little short ones like on the end of factory D60)......the only prob with that is where do you get the other end from, one end is adjustable and the other end is the complete tie rod.

Basically need to know the super beefy TRE numbers and what thread they are to order some inserts/nuts.

Added to the confusion today. I talked to a guy at Mad4wd....they make some blingin arms that are $280 a pair. I started talking to him about TRE's and he said the 2010's would be fine on the tie rod but not on the draglink. He said they cannot handle the angles that the draglink will be operating at. WTF.....???

Well here is what I am thinking I am gonna do......Run a Sky arm on passenger side and there draglink and then make my own tie rod out of 1.50 w/.250 wall DOM using weld in bungs and 2010L and 2234R TRE's (the 2234's are nearly like the 2010L's but about 1/2 the price and same thread.) I am just gonna run my tie rod in the stock location to provide for some diff protection. Hydro assist is next. I have heard the 2" ram is too slow and that 1 3/4" is perfect, PSC has a "kit" that includes 1 3/4 ram, pins, and mounting tabs for like $180. Can't find a Tractor supply 1 3/4 ram!

Any words of wisdom on this stuff......

Any help on the hydro assist? I checked with PSC and there ram only has a 3/4" shaft.....that sounds kinda weak to me. I have heard allot of people complain about the TSC 2x8" ram is too "slow." Can anybody shed light on this for me??

Hydro assist is on my list, as soon as the truck is mobile, and I've looked at several brands. I've decdied on the PSC system, will get everything they offer except their pump. OldGoat and I modified a rebuilt stock pump for better flow. If it doesn't push enough volume I will order a pump from PSC, I think it will do fine. It seems to work for OldGoat pretty well.

I'm running an AGR box but still have the stock pump(modified a little of coarse)!! Only problem so far is that AGR's ram is too small and always leaks, i've been planning on getting that exact PSC ram your looking at but just haven't had the $$ to let go of!!

I just don't like the 3/4" shaft on the PSC ram. Does this bother anyone else or just me?

It will be ok as long as you dont hit it on a rock. But then again, I have seen one of the bigger ag rams bend too. The one I'm running right now is a 3/4" shaft and it's ok. Just be sure to mount the ram where it is out of the way.

The smaller shaft will take up less volume and will help balance the ram a little better than a bigger shaft.
