    i have just bought a 10" lift it came with all u-bolts rear 4" springs and 6" blocks, it also came with the cross-over steering rod with the tie-rods at each end, i have no use for it and was wondering what it is worth, thanks,

    Are you sure it's not a dropped drag link? About a foot long? I don't think many lifts come with cross over unless you get something through ORD or another shop that make crossover kits. What are you doing to correct your steering with a 10" lift?

    It is defanately cross-over, i bought it from a buddy that had the 10" springs, 2" traction lift on his 1/2 ton it is closer to 4' long or so, i currently have a raised steering arm, 3" block and a dropped drag link, my buddy had it attached to his pass side knuckle, when i found out how much it will be to machine my 44 i went the other way, i was wondering how much it is worth and if anyone is interested.

    You better keep it. With 10" of lift, you're not going to like that front to back arrangement for long. What you have now is a band aid.

    how much was it to have the knuckles machined? The draglink and steering arm are usually the two most expensive pieces /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    they were gonna charge $200 to machine the knuckle, then i would have to buy the other parts, im not gonna go through the hassle i would rather sell it.
