    im going to use a raised steering arm for the daily driving over the next little while, possibly a dropped drag link if needed just to get me by until i can find a dana 60 and pick up the xover or highsteer

    ive serached and search and cannot find tips for what steering arms to use, and if ya guys could post the pics of your steering solutions with 52s,:bow::bow::bow:

    you jsut need cross-over. you shouldnt need the spacers, but i run zero-rates, you might need too. i run zero-rates and i havent had clearnace issues, but then again, it hasnt moved since i put all that on.
