    I really am starting to need this upgrade, but don't have a 60 yet and don't know when I'll get one. My question is if I do this on my 10b what will transfer over when/if I get a 60? Also if I do this to my 10b I will prolly also be adding hydro assist. Is swapping over hydro just new tab on the axle right? Anything else need to be changed?
    Thanks

    on the cross over the steering box, pitman arm, and possiblly the draglink. the things that will not is the steering arm and the knuckle.

    no sure about the hydro assist

    You can re-use your TRE's your 2wd box and pitman arm, your lines and you ram. (need new tabs for ram)
    You will need a new tie-rod, steering arm and possibly draglink depending on your exact lenghts

    Not to hi-jack but while we're on crossover steering, I dont want to start yet ANOTHER thread.

    When installing with the ORD RH steering arm, do i have to use studs? or can I use the bolts originally holding on the spring cap to hold the steering arm on??

    what is involved with taking out/installing studs? I havent gotten a chance to look since its 1am and I just read this part on the ord site.
