    i installed ORU's crossover setup on my burb this august , along with switching out my dumb 10 bolts for some 1 ton military goodies.. i have a 6" supendsion lift so i thought i would only need the standard set-up , but I ordered it wrong and got the big steel spacer block to , so i figured i'd put it in. and other than the corssover bar running close to the crossmemeber is there a reason why i souldn't keep it in there??

    Spacer block?? For the stock steering arm on your D60 axle? You don't do anything with that steering arm when doing the crossover, so you can either leave the arm on there, or take it off and cap it.

    A lot of times the studs aren't too happy with the extra leverage of the block. How much lift do you have? You shouldn't really need the block, I'd take it out enjoy the increased durability.
