I just wanted any one building now or near future builders to pay attention to the bolts that attach the steering arm to the spindle upright. The bolt provided for the front of the steering arm (3/8 x 1-3/4") is not long enough to engage the nylock portion of the nut. I have changed mine to 2" long bolts.

there were some slightly longer ones in my kit that had to be used in that location. you may want to check for that.

I took care of it. only 2 longer bolts in my package and they were for the other end of the steering arm I believe they were 2-1/2" long
