    I bought a HD tierod for my truck awhile back. I am now starting the gathering of components for crossover steering. (just purchased knuckles) and I want to know if I can keep using my current tie rod with the crossover.

    The axle is a 10 bolt front. Will my tierod work ok, or will something need to be changed? If so what will I have to do?

    AFAIK, ur good. On my d60 the tie rod is uneffected by whether or not I have x-over... arent 10 bolts the same way?

    no problemo. I had 10 bolts at one point... but I never really messed with the steering on it so Im far from a guru. I did setup my own tie rod + x-over + hydro system on my D60 tho, so i got that much figured out. In any case, Im almost positive that no matter what you do with your xover, you should be able to keep your beefy tierod.
