    Well I've started the crossover setup. This will probably be question 1 of many. My question has to do with the pitman arm. On the off-road.com site they have the write up for a D60 crossover. They use a superlift pitman arm for a 4in. lift on a Phord. I'm going to have close to 8 inches of lift so I was wondering if I should go with a bigger drop or if it would matter. Thanks

    Hmm... Question 2. If I'm running close to 8 inches of lift will I need a bent tie rod?

    Yes, use that same arm. With that amount of lift (8"), you probably wouldn't need a bent draglink. If it doesn't clear, then grind your crossmember a little. Not much would have to be done if anythough.
