    I've used the 1104 pittman arm on just about every steering system I've made.

    I am also running the Superlift #1104 arm on my crossover setup. Fits on perfectly on a 2wd sector shaft.

    thas sweet to know that it works /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif
    can you tell me how much drop you got out of it
    would you still have to use a drop drag link as well with 8" lift /forums/images/graemlins/peace.gif /forums/images/graemlins/peace.gif

    you dont need a drop drag link with crossover
    why prebend your steering?

    i don't want to bend the drag link but as it sits right now the tie rods are already almost maxed out for droop /forums/images/graemlins/doah.gif and it will defenatly bind under full suspention droop. /forums/images/graemlins/eek.gif i am going with hydro assist so that should take some strain off the other steering parts. /forums/images/graemlins/peace.gif
    i just want to get the tierod ends as close to nutural position as posible /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    twist the steering arm or machine it to the angle that the draglink requires
    this trend to machine the arm to match the steering knuckle inclination doesnt make sense for crossover and big lift

    I've got the BDS arm, and it's the same thing, no worries bro. In canada the BDS arm is far far easier to get.
