    <font color="green"> Crossover is not necessary on a street driven truck with only 6" of lift. Normal steering correction wil do it for you. </font>

    What makes one decide it's, "Necessary"? I thought before we decided that it doesn't help with bumpsteer, simply allows you to turn when crossed up, which if you don't have a very flexible suspension, I suppose it doesn't matter.

    I am considering it on my truck due to the fact that all they make for the D60 for steering correction is a block.

    ...or a dropped drag link, Dodge steering arm (it's taller), a dropped pitman arm, taller aftermarket arms...

    what about a dropped draglink, or a dropped pitman arm; i believe those will also work /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif
