    For you guys running hi-steer and crossover steering, where are you mounting the steering stabilizer? The shock mount on the D60 axle tube is way too low. Should I attatch something to the top of the diff?

    well to the top of the diff will be hard to weld, its cast iron. Diff cover or top of axle tube are common placements. Most people run hydro assist with crossover becuase crossover doesn't have as much strength as standard steering.

    Crossover has less strength /forums/images/graemlins/doah.gif I am hoping I can [pun} steer clear [/pun] of putting hydro steering to turn my 38s.

    This one is mounted off the ubolts with a flat tab under 2 of the bolts. It's kind of a triangle shape. It works pretty good and is fairly simple to do.
