The Next Generation of Artec Ultimate High Steer Arms has arrived. Now our arms are CNC machined from Billet 7075 High Strength Aluminum for a stronger and yet 1/3 of the the weight of steel. That's right! Each arm is now 3 lbs versus 9 lbs in steel. That's a big deal and that extra weight savings means not only better race times but less overall vehicle weight which gives better miles per gallon and less wear on tear on other components.
Whether you are just starting out with crossover steering or going full hydro, these arms are meant to handle it all and give you options as well! Paired with our optional Knuckle Bolt Kit, the exclusive design of these arms not only allow you to set how you attach your steering links but where as well and increase overall knuckle and steering strength at the same time.
Rather than use the factory kingpin springs, the knuckle is held together with a springless design that uses a set screw to adjust the torque required to hold together. This eliminates some of the slop that is commonly found in axles that receive moderate offroad abuse. The hardware for a springless conversion is included and consists of a 3/4 inch set screw, jam nut, grease zerk, .250 inch thick load washer, and upper kingpin bushing for each arm. Features:

Artec Industries is based in Salt Lake City, Utah, but its origins are an American success story based in Tucscon, Arizona. The owner, Artie Nuttall, married into a family of off-roaders who quickly infected him with their enthusiasm. So much so that Nuttall took a welding class at a community college so that he could complete DIY axle swaps on his rig in his garage. Turns out he had a talent for welding and in 2010 Artie successfully marketed a line of battery mounts. From there, Artec Welding turned into Artec Industries and though the product line and success grew, Nuttall's attention to craftsmanship and quality never wavered. Shop Artec Industries Now
