    I am wanting to see some pics with cars that have the traditional style steering F1 box with a hoop style or other style steering arm with relation to the front shocks and mount? Im thinking with the fenders on with a steering arm at the top of the spindlle it will hit the shock? Any one with some pics would be great.

    Thanks
    Billy

    I think, if the drag link doesn't run comfortably outboard of the shock, the lower shock mount to the axle might be a bit on the spindly side, i.e. too long from the wishbone bolt.

    I am running a hoop style steering arm and I thinks its too long for my aplication. does anyone know if they make a shorter arm, when I say shorter the space from the back of the spindle to the center of the tie rod hole?

    Got around the problem on mine by putting a step down in the steering arm and then braced it with an infil piece.
