    I need a good clear picture of a standard D60 cross-over steering setup with both the tie rod and draglink painted something other than black. All my pics from when I ran standard configuration cross-over my draglink was not painted and it did't really show up in the pics that I have.
    Need it for the ORD hi-steer review I'm working on, thanks in advance.

    I have a stupid question. If you have a cross over steering do you need to have steering dampers? /forums/images/graemlins/k5.gif

    You need a steering damper unless you have hydro assist steering IMO.

    I am putting hydro assist on so that is why I don't have stabilizers or they would be on there.

    Thank you for the information. Since I am replacing all of my shocks with bilsteins, I will also replace the the damper shocks with bilsteins. /forums/images/graemlins/k5.gif

    No you do not. If it is a trail only rig and you are not running hydro assist it should be fine. When I did the crossover on my Jimmy I did not put a damper on it and it was fine except for the death wobble which was caused by other things. I wound up putting the coil over damper on as a bandaid fix to drive it.

    Here is one on a D70. It's now on a D60 with a yellow tie rod, but I dont have any pics yet.
