Anyone out there running crossover with a front 10 bolt axle? What kind of setup are you running?
Yeah, come on, I hate bump steer!!!
Oh man, how discourging this is...
I think the thing is...if you are doing the kind of wheeling to NECESSITATE x-over and still have a 10 bolt, your steering woes are going the be the least of your worries. That aside, I would think you could swap the knuckles for the flat-top Dana 44 knuckles (and outers), and do a crossover that way.
yep upper and lower ball joint part nu#'s are the same 10 bolt or d44 but i also believe you need the d44 tierod to connect the knuckles i encourge you to make sure before you get into something /forums/images/graemlins/eek.gif
Yep, I have one on my '87 10 bolt. I got some flat top knuckles from a '75 Chevy Dana 44, filed the top of the flat top myself and drilled and tapped the knuckle myself and installed a crossover arm from Off Road Design. I took an old tie rod from a mid 80's Chevy Blazer and bent it up to make my drag link and used stock tie rod ends. Total investment was less than $100.00.
You got a crossover PITMAN arm from ORD? Does it just have the teeth in a different spot so you can rotate the pitman 45 degrees?
Any companies out there that would make a crossover draglink for this type of application?
I got both pieces from ORD. the steering arm that attaches to the passenger knuckle and the pitman arm that attaches to a 2 wheel drive steering box. (Which is a modified jeep arm)
