    I have a 73 Chevy K10 with Dana44 front. I want to do crossover steering but am wondering is it really worth it? How does it drive afterwards (on and off road)? I am running 35" tires now but plan to run 37" or 38.5" soon.

    If I take off my blocks in the rear (6" Skyjacker kit) and put 4" springs and 4" shackle flip will my dual shock kit from my 6" lift still work?

    I have 12bolt rear with factory (i think) limited slip - Can't I replace the carrier with a non-limited slip and then install a locker?

    Has anyone put disc brakes on a 12bolt? How do you like it over drum? Is it worth the $$$?

    Thanks guys for all your help :cool1: .

    1. Its worth it , not taking a strap because ya can turn the tires is a good thing , I know and am gonna go crossover soon .

    2. Shocks may work , but ya need to cycle to suspension to see if it limits up/down travel , and move mounts if neccessary . I have longer fronts than needed , and have been to lazy to do new mounts myself , but it works well for me for now , I hit my fenders before I bottom the shocks .

    3. Yes , locker good , I run a 12 bolt with a lockright .

    4. Another someday thing for me on all my projects and DD . Have 4 wheel discs on wifes car though , and that thing rocks
