    cool, now in your opinion do you think highsteer will be good for street use too, i have heard some negatives about highsteer, like stuff breakin because of too much stress? what do you think?
     
  7. I haven't really thought about it, but if you have to put blocks on the knuckle to make it over the springs then it's not cool and I won't do it. My experience with steering blocks is not good. I was pulling out of a parking spot when my studs went. One snapped, one bent/snapped, and the other stripped all of the threads from it. Now if it is just the arms with no blocks then no problems that I see. If you are looking at more highway then off-road then go with regular ole crossover. No need in high steer unless you hits the rocks alot or DEEPPPPPPP Mud with the occasional Oh crap rocks and other things in the holes !!

    well i was going to go with regular x-over but the knuckles i got are for the top mount tie rod, and my stock tie rod rubs the leaf springs, so i know that the rock rod is definitly gonna rub, i know i can put heim joints/sperical rod ends on it but for some reason i want to keep it kinda stock, i dont really know how hard the heim joints are to find, i guess if they are realitivly(sp?) easy to get at a parts store them i might go with that. what is your advice or experience with heim joints?
