    Is there any real differences, other than everything is above the axle? Dose of have more advantage over the other? Since i don't do very much rock crawling i'm trying to justify the extra money. thanks

    you answered your own question. the difference is that the tierod is above the springs. If you don't need more clearance in front of your axle then stick to just crossover. you can always buy the rest of the parts later.

    High steer also puts alot of stress at the top of the knuckle and can cause premature breakage.
