    (Yes, I tried searching first... /forums/images/graemlins/blush.gif ) I want to start gathering parts for a xover steering setup. I pretty much know what I need from looking at old posts. What I am a little confused on is I keep reading the term Hi Steer? What is the difference between this and a regular xover and what else parts wise do you need?

    The crossover steering setup eliminates the steering box to drivers side draglink which runs front to back and instead with a custom pitman arm off the steering box travels across the truck to the opposite knuckle. A high steer setup moves the bar which connect the two tires (and adjusts toe in / toe out) up above the leaf pack rather than below. The arms on the knuckle for both look similar and the crossover arm on the passenger side usually has a few extra holes to allow for hi steer.

    Hows that build of yours coming along? Got the 57's on yet?
