    Hi-steer w/zero rate and axle moved 1.5\" forward

    I am about to swap in my dana 60 but would like to do hi steer. I have 4" lift springs, plus a zero rate moving the axle 1.5" forward and using a sky-manufacturing steering arm for my cross-over. If I get another sky arm for the drivers side to run high steer, will the tie rod clear the leaf springs?

    I think you might be OK with tierod to spring clearance but your tierod would most likely contact your pitman arm.

    Damn, didn't think of that. Guess I will wait until the 60 is under there and see what it would look like.

    Thanks
