    ok, heres the million dollar question. I currently have a 10 bolt front. If I were to upgrade to x-over now....later on when I get a D60, would I be able to use some of the same parts? I already have machined D44 knuckles.

    Could I use the same steering box? pitman arm? drag link?

    also, i can use a 4x4 steering box if I swap sector shafts right? just how hard and spendy is that? My current SB is kinda leaky anyway, maybe I should just find a used 2wd box instead...which vehicles make good donors for that?

    any info greatly appreciated, I am gonna need some steering upgrades soon anyway (more lift up front)...so i thought I'd go xover IF i can retain some of the parts.

    As long as your rod ends are the same as the ones used on a D60 X-over you should be able to use it all. The only thing different would be the steering arm for the 60.
