    I am wondering the normal lengths of the draglink for crossover on a 10 bolt and a D60? I know they are all different but how many inches of DOM am I going to need roughly?

    10bolt straight?
    10bolt bent?

    D60 bent?

    Thanks

    I am interested in this too. Could somebody out there measure their 10b/44 and somebody measure their 60. I am being told their is a major difference between the two, and I just don't understand why /forums/images/graemlins/confused.gif

    I bought 4 feet and had 8-10 inches left over. I can messure it tonight and get an exact number. This is for a D44 with, sky arm, using tube inserts.

    Yours is straight right Mike. Have any problems with interference with the motor crossmember or to much angle on the TRE's? Thanks

    Yes it's straight. I haven't had any problems so far but I do have my axle moved forward about an 1 inch. I moved it forward by re-drilling the spring pad/plate and not using a zero rate. You might have problems with the stock location of the axle and a straight link. The TRE's seems to have enough range of motion to handle it, although I've never specifically check that.

    I know what happens when they don't have anymore range. /forums/images/graemlins/crazy.gif /forums/images/graemlins/whistling.gif /forums/images/graemlins/ignore.gif
