Northwest Fab is proud to offer the highest quality steering arm in the off-roading market! Our Dana 44 arms are thought out from the beginning, they are 100% CNC machined from a solid piece of steel. Combining this with perfect geometry for steering and ball joint Axis Inclination Angle and the result is a perfectly parallel surface between arms.
If you're building a rig with a Dana 44 and leaf springs - you're going to run into problems with getting the tie-rod over your leaf spring pack. One solution previously used is to add a 'spacer' underneath the steering arm and fastening using exceptionally long studs. This system under loads has an increased failure rate due to the studs sheering and arm disconnecting from the knuckle. Our arms have a mounting surface 2.5" above the knuckle ( 1.25" taller than flat arms, not a measly 7/8" like our competitors ). The arms are 1.25" thick at the knuckle mount and still retain the use of standard length studs. To accomplish this we CNC the arms out of blocks of Billet-Steel!
