    On the stock pitman arm on 2WD steering boxes, will this work with X over? I have read that there are different types that will work. /forums/images/graemlins/dunno.gif

    Not the stock Chevy pieces. You can use the Superlift #1104 arm for Ford's or you can use a Jeep arm. I don't remember which one offhand though. I use the #1104 arm. It works great.

    Stock Chevy 2wd arm is a wearable part with a tapered stud. The aftermarket setup is a tapered hole for a tie rod end and this is why you cannot use a stock 2wd arm with crossover. You need a hole, not a stud.

    The axle I just purchased is a D44 with an ARB, Chrom-moly shafts, CTM u joints, and X over steering. The PO had a hydraulic assist setup on it, so the welded tabs are already there. My question is would you guys go ahead and get the hydraulic setup if you were me? I looked into West Texas Off Road and it looks like I could get a box fitted for $150. I would then need to buy some lines and a ram. Are the rams really that expensive? Could I buy one from a different source, if so what type would I need. Let me know what you guys think /forums/images/graemlins/whistling.gif

    I've researched rams locally and they're more expensive than WTO.

    If you can afford to go hydro assit, do it now!! It will save your frame from carnage.
