    I am going to do crossover on my D60. I need to buy a crossover arm.
    Should I get one with a taper/angle in it or just a flat one? I have heard it is better both ways.


    Thanks!

    <font color="green"> It really depends on what your drag link is going to be. Bent draglink, no angle, straight draglink, get the angled one. </font color>

    I would (did) get the angled arm with a straight drag link. Avoid the bent link if you can, but that means modifying the front cross member too. I would also get the tapered holes for TREs/DLEs. IMO, heims are not ideal for daily drivers AND they are more difficult to replace when/if they break (for me, usually late at night on a Saturday before a Monday holiday in the middle of BFE).
