    moves the tierod behind the pumkin, so u can move the frt axle forward w/ out interferance. never seen it on a d44 though, only on 60's, some might make it, but i dunno

    not to pick at u too much but that would be a high dollar mod that very few people would ever notice for just the cool factor. just my $.02

    its more expensive for one, and not necessary unless the axle is more than 3" forward.

    dont know of anyone that makes them for a d44. everyone is basing it on the fact that reverse histeer is more for d60's so it would be the same case for a d44

    I'm going High Steer From WFO. I have many clearance issues and this should clear it right up. Looked on his site and found crossover, no Reverse. Might call and ask, very helpful guy.

    I run reverse on my 60. An advantage that no one has mentioned is your toe out on turns angle (akerman angle) I believe with front high steer you will actualy toe in on turns.
