A hysteer setup. Comes with 2 arms and a tierod. Got it for $260 shipped. Its not the best but it will do for now until I can afford hydro assist. Both arms are bent in enough so I could even run stock hummer rims. Now all I need is to make my drag link once I get the suspension on. What do you all think?

Oh yeah most definately. I didn't even notice that they were not tapered. Put a 60 degree taper in them and use some lug nuts. Or you can buy the stud/nut kits from ORD for a few bucks.

Wait, are you talking about the TRE holes or the bolt holes for boltiing it to the knuckle?

For the TRE holes. If you plan on using TRE's or DRE's and not heims, you need to use a 1.5" per foot taper reamer to taper the holes to match the TRE's or DRE's.

For the bolt holes: You need to use a countersink with a 60* included angle and taper the tops of the holes so you can use a stud and a tapered lug nut.
