yes that is what i was asking and where did you find a new steering arm, I looked all over and couldnt find anything!!! See My body is a 67 c-10 but my frame is from another year because it has the closed knuckle with the dana rears and I cant tell what year it is but my guess is early 1960's?

Adding one more build to the 4x4 channel. I was inspired by the thought of re-machining the steering arm instead of cutting/welding.

Sorry pics are rotated 90° - Apple “thing.”
