    would my daily driver suburban benifit from a cross over steering kit with the 4" lift it has? i'm going a little taller next year. 5"-6" probably.

    I am not a steering guru...but if you off-road in your sub, I have little doubt x-over would help you. I have my Jimmy lifted 4"...and when the drivers side droops, I have pretty much no steering control. I am gonna get x-over....when I can afford it! ;)

    Jeks got it right....even a 4" lift can benefit from x-over steering. I think the reason you don't see it more is that it's a fairly expensive conversion, and you can sort of "fake it" on a 4" lift without one. By the time you get to a 6"+ lift, you really don't have a choice about crossover steering....it becomes a necessity!

    Supposedly, the turning radius is improved for street driving too (better than stock?) so the truck becomes more enjoyable there too.....imagine that. [​IMG]
