    I just read for the first time that I might need a spacer for my D44 steering arm when I convert to crossover.

    I am running 4" lift springs with 1" zero rate. Am I going to need a spacer and new studs for my knuckle? I am going to be using a bent draglink if that matters any.

    If so how exactly do I get the old studs out of the knuckle? Thanks

    I'm running the exact same setup as you and am going to have to do the same thing. If you want to save your existing studs, use a jam nut to remove the studs....or get a stud remover or you can do what I did and tack welded a nut to the stud and took them out /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    You need new longer steering studs though don't you? Do you need the 1/2" or the 1" spacer to clear?

    i had to run the spacer.....i got mine from poison spyder....i used 5/8 studs instead of the 9/16 ones cause i broke the 9/16 off the knuckle wheelin /forums/images/graemlins/eek.gif.....also i keyed the spacer and arm together so they cant move....
