    D60 steering block for 4\" lift

    Anyone got one for cheap to reasonable? I don't need new cuz I'm going with crossover as soon as possible.

    Rene-

    I talked to ORD about this subject... they don't like 'em too much. I asked them to make me up a 2" version so I could use their Zero Rates to move my 60 forward... but they warned against it due to the stress it puts in the block/studs under HEAVY load.

    Why not just get the new crossover draglink made to correct for your lift? I had RockStomper make mine, and it sits parallel to the axle... I could take pics if you are interested. The RockStomper xover kit cost me $500 COMPLETE with tie rods, ends, steering arm, pitman arm, required hardware, and a spiffy RockStomper.com sticker! /forums/images/icons/wink.gif

    Let me know if you want any pics... its not real pretty anymore, since I've used and abused it for over 1yr now! /forums/images/icons/smile.gif But its still straight!

    Well that's my plan...eventually. I broke the bank getting the diffs and still need tires so I don't have the dough for cross-over right now. MJ figures a dropped pitman arm would be a better short term solution with better resale...we'll see. The bottom line is I need to be able to drive it and I'll have to live with the front to back stock style steering for at least a couple of months.

    well, here it is...

    I have one, and pending the delivery of a 2WD steering box, it (the new x-over steering, making the block unneeded) should be installed sometime this month.

    you can have it once i get the x-over in, but i do not know if your situation is time sensative.

    PM me and we can see waht we can do /forums/images/icons/cool.gif
