    OK here is a question for you guys on hydro assist. Ok i am saveing for crossover but until then i have stock steering. I was wondering if you could run hydro assist like big rigs and gradalls. I work on heavy equipment and the other day was checking it out.They have a stock steering arm setup like ours but the hydro assist is like the stock steering on the other side it goes from the frame to the knuckle. What do you think? Just an idea

    How would this work when your flexed out? On semi's they don't fles so that isn't a problem but how would you get the ram to drop with the axle? Also, with stock steering the problem is the draglink's angle and placement. Whn your drivers side tire droops you loose steering becasue of the angle of the draglink. So your ram would be deamed useless when you need it the most. It would casue your stock steering to bind and possible break it.
