    With a standard crossover, the stock tie rod setup is used. I can get measurements for you tonight if no one beats me to it...

    Some of the measurements you are asking for depend on the arms being used. Both highsteer and the drop arm off of the steering box. Also, straight line measurements would not be an accurate meausrement if the dragling is bent because of the crossmember(i.e. do you no good).
    And, as always, each truck is a little different.

    Yeah I know there are going to be minor differences in each truck. Just tryin to get a ballpark:D

    So I also need to know whose arm you are using, and which pitman arm lift amount etc.

    I'm running the ORD setup like surpip, so I guess measurements won't help much...

    you are right i measured how you asked for it

    the bend starts 5"from the pitman arm and is 6"long
    just diddent measure from the bend to the arm
