    Bills are paid and I only got rained out of one day of work, so this a after next paycheck I am doing my crossover steering conversion on my 10 bolt. I am going to use a junk yard tie rod linkage for the drag linkage and junk yard pitman arm, I already have the 2wd steering box. I need either one passenger side Knuckle milled and tapped, a spacer, bolts cones and washers, and a steering arm or I have found 2 knuckles and 2 arms on ebay for about $250 already assemblied acouple weeks ago, but nothing now. I figure if the price is right, why not do high steer while I'm at it. So the real question is who has the best price and where did you get your stuff. I am looking to spend about $150 for the crossover or $250 for high steer. If I can find a milled knuckle cheap enough, I found blank steering arms and spacers for 25.00 arms and 15.00 spacers. They come with diagrams for the drilling, but then they wouldn't be tappered for the tre's. But I can find a cheap enough knuckle, I can put out the extra money for heim joints. I don't mind doing extra work to save money and have a better set up. Many people on this board and others talk about how they did there conversion for $200, $250 or so but how? Maybe the already had flat top passenger knuckles, but they still have to pay to get them machined and tapped. I mean I already have the box and I think I am gonna end up digging real deep in my pocket for this project. So for rambling, but how do I save my hard earned money!! /forums/images/graemlins/truck.gif

    www.Sky-Manufacturing.com. I run their arm and it's a stout unit. Have you scoured the yards for flat tops? If ya can't find a set then get a set on ebay for about $75-$100. You can send it to Sky, ORD, or Parts Mike they all do mill drill and tap. Parts mike is doing mine right now for $50. You said you are making the rest of the stuff yourself? What are you planning on using for a pitman arm? The popular choice is the Superlift #1104 arm.

    So
    $100 for knuckles
    $100 for mill drill and tap
    $50 for 2 stud kits
    $150 for 2 steering arms

    I went through R&D Motorsports somewhere in cali. but it wasn't cheap, I paid $580 + shipping for the custom arms bent (both sides) tie rod, and drag link,

    this is stonger than stock stuff (tie rod and draglink) and is both high steer and crossover.

    do a search on this it's been covered, last time I linked the pirate thread from about 3 weeks ago.
