yes that one is. the ram was mounted high on that axle, I like the tie rod to be mounted under the highsteer arm for double sheer but woudnt work on that rig because of where the ram was mounted.

edit no its not solid bar it was thick wall dom I tapped threads in.

I agree, I really like the double sheer setup. It helps spread the load over the knuckle too. I ordered artec's arms which are basically the same design as the ones you posted above. I think I will be happy with this set up.

Pretty sure if you are not mounting the tie rod in double sheer (under the high arm), connecting the two steering arms does little to nothing.

pretty sure if the vehicle doesn't have a functioning suspension or drivetrain, steering is not an issue

you are surely one to talk... and yes steering does matter now because I need to have the steering ram in place when I build out the top part of the chassis and mount radiators etc..

you don't think connecting the two steering arms helps spread the load from the top of the knuckle to the lower half of the knuckle? me thinks it does
