    My crossover works great except for one thing. The ball joint boot cover on both steering box and knuckle end keeps SPLITING APART. I know its because the angle of the ball joint to the mounting surface. Should i have the knuckle plate machined to the proper angle , like some i've seen? Or maybe go with heim joints? Then again maybe my boots are cheap (the are pretty hard) and i need to get good ones, if so any ideas on where to find'um. I also suppose i could find or maybe have someone bend my steering arm so the joints meet at the proper angles , but i don't think i like that way as much. thanks
