    Wan pondering and figuring steering correction on my 71. Basically put a 4-5" lift on it and need to correct steering angles. Prog just go with a raised steering arm if I can find cheap but was thinking, If I put a 2wd sector shaft in the box can I run that Ford superlift pitman arm like we use on our crossover steering setups but clock it for front/back steering? The secter is splined all the way around with 4 misplined sectoins around it. Anyone try that? If it worked I would go that route then when I could scrounge a crossover steering arm I could re-index and be done. Make sense?

    Yes you can. I checked when I put in my crossover just incase I had to revert to push/pull on a trail run.
