    I too have a stock D60 steering arm off a 1984 chevy D60. Everything is for sale for the right price. If you're interested then PM me with an offer.

    it all depends on whwt kind of wheeling you do. SOme guys do mud and fire roads and can get away with 12" of lift and stock steering. Some guys like myself do rock crawling and need crossover with 4" Any lower than 4" and your gonna start running into some major interference with your frame, leafs and the steering links.

    I do intend to lift but dont have money for that right now and I would like to get it driveable. I can deal with stock for a while do to no lift=no flex on 20 year old springs. When I do my lift I will be going to crossover and maybe highsteer. My final plans are to make it a rock rig.
