    Profile shows you have an 8" suspension lift. what kind of steering are you running?

    IMO crossover is mandantory at that height.

    i dont think anyone makes anything for that kind of lift... the block is supposed to be good to 8"... but i can tell you its not /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif

    when you turn, does it lift your body or turn your tires?
    start looking into crossover

    I have to agree. When I went from a 4" lift w/10B to a 6" D60, the steering plain sucked. When I went to crossover the difference was incredible, it actually felt like I was driving the Jimmy again instead of herding it.
