    I just put a post up of places selling kits for cross over... why dont you do a search /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif jk

    I was looking at the ORD site and it said the drag link its 95 and then 110 for the ends... is that 110 to thread the ends? or 110 to make them compatible for heim jnts??? /forums/images/graemlins/confused.gif

    You need 2wd box, flattop machined, pitman and steering arms, draglink, and thats it.

    You don't need the whole 2wd steering box. You only need the 2wd sector shaft. Find a 2wd Chevy at Ecology and pull the 4 bolts on the bottom of the box and lift out the sector shaft. Then replace the sector shaft in your 4wd box with the 2wd unit.

    Places offer the draglink with ends already machined for under the $160 for the 20' DOM. I know you are probably going to have Andrew make you a rockrod with some of the 20' stick though.

    dont forget the weld on and bolt on steering box brace...because if you dont have it already you WILL break your frame runnin cross over...may not happen soon but will happen just at the time when you are in a world of $hit...may want to think about runnin a track bar from the frame to the axle..so it will keep the springs from shifting back and forth and will reduce the wandering and the play in the steering..the track bar should not reduce the amount of flex you are getting..but the main thing...get the steering box braces

    Question for Chaz88K5. Can you provide any details on the track bar that you are talking about? I have 72 blazer w/ a 4" lift and 35's that loves to wander all over the freeway.

    I bought a steering box arm off of ebay.It is machined to re position it on the box (4x4)to be the same as a (4x2)box.I'll check and see if I can find the maker of it..
