    All I have to say is this set up rocks crossover/highsteer (ord). I heard it made a difference in your steering but dang :woot:

    I just got my D60/14ff swapped in and got to drive it for the first time without DW since I just fixed that. :D

    My turning radius is unbelievable now it is tighter than the new saturn my wife drives and this is with 44's and the wheel spacers in the rear.

    You have to do a 2-3 point turn to make a u turn on my street in my wifes car and the blaze I just sat there going in circles over and over again cause I couldn't believe it. :haha:


    Anyways just wanted to spout off about how happy I am with my new set up :wink1:

    Just need to hook up my hydro assist any pointers on the mounting points for this? :confused:

    I had the exact same experience with insanely good turning radius with my own ORD Crossover/HighSteer conversion....

    seriously, not enough can be said about crossover steering, turning radius is amazing, flipping U turns with 40 inch tires, when I had to do 2 or 3 point turns with 33"s and the regular steering setup.

    And now I have a burb to play with the stock steering, it sucks.

    Where is a good mounting point for hydro assist on a D60 with highsteer/crossover?

    Does anyone make a bolt on clamping system so i do not have to weld on my draglink or connecting rod? I was thinking of somekind of mount clamping around the axle and a clamp on my draglink.

    any thoughts or pictures would be great?

    The ram has to go from the axle to tie rod, nothing to do with the drag link, here is what DIY has for the axle part.
