    after reading this thread http://coloradok5.com/forums/showthread.php?t=169666, i have a few theorectical questions about the steering issues. could you run the behind the axle highsteer arm on the pass side, and run the drag link in the back hole, then flip the pitman arm so it was pointing forward? these two motions should cancel each other and create the proper motion for turning the wheel left, and the tires going left too.

    any holes in this theory?

    all you need is standard reverse high steer double arms from WFO, everything will work fine.

    Actually I think I had to trim an inch or two so off my draglink when I went to reverse/high steer for the 52" swap....
