Dana 60 steering arm spacers

Anybody know where I can get a pair of 1/2" spacers to put under my high-steer arms on a KP D60? I need just a little bit to make everything line up right. Have searched the interwebs, to no avail. Thanks guys

spctrbytz just gettin started
Usually, those blocks come 2 to 2 1/2" thick and people gripe about breaking the studs after installing.

You may be better off with a different set of arms with a rise built in, or convincing a machinist friend to whip up a spacer plate for the arm and puck for the kingpin.

Being only 1/2" I'm not too worried about the stud breakage. And the machinist thing is already in the works for the ram pucks I need, so Imma bring a little more to the meeting this morning and see what he can do. Hell, I'm off today, I may go 'help'

I used 3 thick flat washers under the heim on my tierod to raise ot up about 1/2". That gave me the clearance i needed to clear the leafs.

The heims are under the arms, but I can't put them on top of the arms. They won't line up there either.

What are you worried about, I cant make out a problem from the pic? I guess I wouldn't worry to much if the tierods were pointing down slightly if that is what you are talking about. You can always make a bracket on the bottom of the high steer arm to allow you to mount them in double shear.

Is this at your place I need to swing by and see how its coming?

It's at Mike's in Hawley. Steered straight is not a prob, when turned to lock it goes even lower and looks to just start to bind. The ram cant go lower due to the diff, and cant go higher due to oilpan. It came out nice, just wanna tweak that one issue. I'm also gonna put a safety washer between the heim and arm to help the check nut clear also.

What does it look like when its on top and turned all the way? I would want that tierod as straight as possible when it fully extended to keep any side load off the shaft.

I've not tried on top, cuz it would be bound up while straight. Natural alignment is just at the bottom of the arm. The safety washers I'm gonna use would make it worse. Not bad, but it'll be right shortly
