    10 bolt crossover steering???\'s

    I need to know the best way to setup cross-over steering on a 10 bolt. Does anyone make a kit? Any suggestions would be helpful.

    I *think* you need a minimum suspension lift, as well...

    Check out this link http://www.offroaddesign.com/Dana44crossover.htm


    I think they explain everything you need. I've got some flat top knuckles if you can't find any local. PM me if needed.

    If you have a small suspension lift go with the ORD draglink. It has a bend in it to clear your engine crossmember. I only have a 2 1/2" lift and have no issues with it hitting.

    Just did this with a 44, here is what you need...
    1. Both side flat tops. The taper tie rod location is different won't mix and match. have the pass drilled and tapped
    2. early style tie rod, or zero rate as the stock tie rod will hit the spring. There is a guy selling these (new moog) cheap on ebay.
    3. Steering arm, I used a sky mfg. 75.00 with hardware, their customer service rocks.
    4. drag link, I used a sky mfg here too. 84.00 to my door +
    TREs.
    5. drop pitman arm, I used a skyjacker #1104.
    6. #2 reamer 1.5" per foot, You need to ream the pitman arm, once again, the cheapest one I found was a guy on ebay 35.00.
    7. 2wd box
    While you're at it might as well go hydro assist.
    box tap was easy, I think I have 30.00 in fittings and lines and a 59.00 ram.
