Default Anyone know where to find high steer arm blueprints??

I milled and drilled my D44 knuckles, now all i need is the high steer arms. Seeing as how i am a machinist, i would hate to spend all that money for something i could do myself. I just need some prints!!

i would say if you milled and drilled your arms you've already got them !

There's not a lot of thougth.. just make your bolt pattern the same as what you've already drilled and then extend it out about 6"

you also need 2 tapered reamers. 1 1/2" per foot, and 26.5* i believe.

Thats what i was thinking.. then i just have to cut out a pocket for clearance around the ball joint.

Thanks for the input everyone! I'll be making these tomorow.
