    I've got an 86 Blazer with Procomp 4" springs in the front. I'm not sure if they have sagged or if they came that way(I don't remember), but looking at them there is no arch to them. I am about to get a Dana 60 and I want to do crossover and hi-steer on it but I'm not sure that it will fit. Anyone on here have crossover on their rig with 4" lift? Got any pictures? /forums/images/graemlins/1zhelp.gif

    Why do you want to do hi steer?

    I would believe that crossover can be done at any height if you modify the engine crossmember. I haven't done mine yet so I'll have to look at it then.

    Sky told me it can definitely be done at 4" with their setup but at 4" you may have clearance issues. I have 6" so I'm ok I guess.

    Only because I may be getting some hi steer arms from a friend. My real problem isn't the hi steer it's the crossover. I really would rather not go any higher with lift, but then I may have clearance problems like you said.

    4" is the minimum. Or at least its the most common run setup. Need a bent draglink to avoid the crossmember. I'm just gonna modify the crossmember so I can run a straight link.

    I got crossover, are you goin to be down with Jason and the other NCOR guys in Feb for the hammers? I can show you why my highsteer didnt work on mine. But Im running 4" of lift with my front axle moved forward 2" and a lot of travel and i needed to do some modifications to the engine crossmember to run a straight drag link.
