    If you're gonna go to the trouble of installing crossover steering why do a half-a$$ed job and bend your drag link to fit under your springs? There are so many different high-steer options available now it's a shame to display your family tree's propensity for linear travel this way.

    The nice way of putting it is those heavy "S" links tend to cause a lot of akward steering, bend easily even when gusseted, and often have interference (sp?) problems. I would recomend you find a pair of flat tops, and do it like everybody else. I know it is not cheap but there are some ways to make it more budget friendly.

    PS. Jay, are you gonna make it to florence on the 31st? If so I can fill you in on the new C.E.E. version I have in my head.
