    Can cross over steering be done w/ only 2" Suspension lift? I figure i'll have to trim some on the cross member. All cross overs i've seen have been 4" or more. This is also for a D 44. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

    I think you can do it, but like you say, you will have some clearance issue to work on. a set of taller bumpstops, or some spacers may be useful. My custom leaves were build to compress into the factory "full bump" location and it worked with the crossover so it's definitely possible. Stuff to watch for is the pitman arm to spring clearance and the draglink to frame clearance on the right side. And of course the crossmember.
