Looking for steering arm that will work on Ford Econoline axle. Going to cross steer need arm I can bolt to passenger side spindle. Spindle hole width is 2 1/2" center to center. Is there something that will work or do I have to make one.
Thanks Gary

Gary, check Speedway's flat steering arms. I'm not positive, but I think they're your ticket.

Hi Ray Ya I already spoke to tech at speedway and was told the flat arms measure 3 1/4 center to center. I need 2 1/2 center to center to bolt to spindle. If any one has arm they could measure I would appreciate it. Thanks Gary

Speedway's arms are Mustang spindles. I think they could still be reworked to fit if you don't mind some welding and such. Probably could have the ears built up to allow the holes to be moved in to your measurement without much effort.

Gary, I'm thinking a flat steering arm should be simple enough to make. Couldn't hurt to try....... And if you're successful, make a bunch and sell 'em

Wow! That sure a great price, and cheap enough to not even think about making one! I'll keep that name in my rolodex!

I just had a fab shop make me three Incase I messed up one in the final fit. I have $25 each in them if you want one. The brace will need to be clearanced for the king pin (check pic on my Comet) and it has 3/8 centering hole for cross steer rod that will need reamed for ball joint or drilled for Hiem joint bolt.
