    I seen a few post about people rubbing thier drag linsk when they do hi steer. My axle is moved forward and from what I found on it, thats when the rubbing starts.. My axle is forward about4-5" so I'm guessing hi steer is out of the question unless I run a flat pitman arm and a more then normal bent drag link. or as grant just said to me " run the arms backwards and mount an idler arm on the pass side frame rail then back to the drivers side."


    ???
    although reg crossover is cheaper (less arms,LOL)

    dude, the willys is a trailer'd rig right? why the heck are you gonna have a pitman arm? or a draglink? full hydro that sucker man!!! make things so much simpler... and you could put your tie rod whereever you want, including above/behind the diff with "backwards" steering arms... or maybe custom ones. /forums/images/graemlins/laugh.gif

    It depends on the spring setup and the arms.... I'm using 52s up front and sky arms and have no rubing issues with the springs... Just the pitman arm! /forums/images/graemlins/rolleyes.gif
