The optional steering kit includes a pre-formed gusset that welds on to the stock forged outer steering-arm, making a double-shear interface that is much stronger than stock. For optimum weld penetration, we pre-heated the steering-arm with a small propane torch. To properly locate the gusset, we assembled the Heim-joint and hardware and then tack welded the gusset into place. Then we removed the Heim before finishing the welds to avoid melting the Teflon lining. Also supplied with the kit is a tapered reducer that fits into the ball-joint socket to accept a standard 7/16 grade-8 bolt.
