Whether you are just starting out with crossover steering or going full hydro, these arms are meant to handle it all and give you options as well! Paired with our optional Knuckle Bolt Kit (sold separately), the exclusive design of these arms not only allow you to set how you attach your steering links but where as well and increase overall knuckle and steering strength at the same time. Rather than use the factory kingpin springs, the knuckle is held together with a springless design that uses a set screw to adjust the torque required to hold together. This eliminates some of the slop that is commonly found in axles that receive moderate off-road abuse. The hardware for a springless conversion is included and consists of a 3/4" set screw, jam nut, grease zerk, .250" thick load washer, and upper kingpin bushing for each arm. Studs and nuts are NOT INCLUDED and are available for purchase separately. Please Note: Wheels with extremely large backspacing should not be used in conjunction with this high steer arm. These arms have been confirmed to fit 17", 4.75" backspaced wheels. Will NOT work with factory backspaced H1 wheels. The bulge on the side of the arm measures 1.25" from the spindle mounting surface. Please confirm you have adequate space between arms and wheels/tires before purchasing. NOTE FOR SOLID AXLE KNUCKLES: Solid Axle Industries recommends using grade 8 bolts instead of studs for mounting the high steer arms. Studs will work for the standard 4 holes but will not seat correctly in the 5th and 6th holes since they are in the keyway and machined higher than the rest. The 6-bolt versions of our arms are not countersunk for these holes since it is recommended to use bolts rather than studs. You can still use studs and tapered nuts for the 4 main holes but you'll need to countersink the holes on the arms.
Artec Industries is based in Salt Lake City, Utah, but its origins are an American success story based in Tucscon, Arizona. The owner, Artie Nuttall, married into a family of off-roaders who quickly infected him with their enthusiasm. So much so that Nuttall took a welding class at a community college so that he could complete DIY axle swaps on his rig in his garage. Turns out he had a talent for welding and in 2010 Artie successfully marketed a line of battery mounts. From there, Artec Welding turned into Artec Industries and though the product line and success grew, Nuttall's attention to craftsmanship and quality never wavered. Shop Artec Industries Now
