I had a thought on crossovers and steering boxes.

    Now I know you need a 2wd so the pitman arm is oreintated correctly but really isnt the shaft of the steering box a circle so couldnt you use a custom pitman arm the bolted on the same but orientated like a 2wd box so you wouldnt have to swap that out? or am i missing somthing?

    <font color="green"> Yes, but nobody makes a steering arm with the proper spline in it. </font color>

    I have been wondering the same thing for quite some time.

    As popular a mod as the crossover is you would think SOMEONE would make an arm that will go to the 4wd box. /forums/images/graemlins/confused.gif

    That'd be interesting to see if Bill (45acp) could fabricate something like that. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif
