    I need to buy a crossover steering setup for my front Dana 60. There are several setups available on the market, ORD, perfomance unlimited, ORU, Dynatrac, etc. etc.

    I want quality and durability first, and cheap price second. Looks like you can spend anywhere from $250 to $600 on a setup.

    I would like to hear about experiences with the various setups and which one you guys think is best for the price.

    Thanks

    I just installed the complete Rockstomper system yesterday. I have not drove on it yet but everything fit good and went togeather without any problems. Total price was a little over $500 for everything. Here is a breakdown of it:

    pitman arm
    drag link with ends and jam nuts
    D60 steering arm (needed to buy 4 bolts for it, not included in the kit)
    tie rod and ends and jam nuts

    All I needed was a 2wd steering box and the 4 bolts above.

    I would get the ORD steering arm as it has the correct angle machined into it to compensate for the drag link angle.

    All the other steering arms I have seen are just flat and will cause drag link binding.
