    I've got a raised steering arm on my 5.5" lift... what would you guys suggest as the best way to fix the steering. I bought a set of 10" superlift springs i will be running up fornt. thanks a lot...

    ps im running 35's right now and will probably running 38" radials... not sure what yet though. crossover/hi steer will come with the new tires.

    Sounds like time for crossover steering when you put those 10" springs in.

    I have the steering correction from a superlift 12" kit (drop pitman arm, drop drag link, raised steering arm and 3" steering arm spacer block) that should be available for sale in less than a week or so.

    I would HIGHLY recommend going with crossover if you can at all afford it...

    Hi steer moves the tierod above the springs for more clearance. You do not need highsteer to run crossover. and if you still have a d44 or 10bolt, highsteer and crossover is alot to ask from it. its alot of stress on the knuckles. if you have a 60 its much easier/cheaper to do.

    i have a 10 bolt :doah: . i cant afford to swap it out for a d60 though... i dont think ill have problems in 2wd on the street anyway... the 10bolt would hold up fine.
