    Ok I just get my tax return next week so I need to figure out some stuff. I want to get some 0-rates to move the axle an inch forward. I also want to get the ORD crossover setup. Will the axle relocation cause any interfernce problems with the crossover? Anybody run this setup? Another question is I have 4" springs plus a shim in the rear can I get the 1" 0-rates with the shim machined in to it? If so how can I figure out what degree shim I have? Thanks everybody.

    By the way this is on an 89 with 4" springs with 36's. 37's will be ordered in the next couple weeks
    Ohh yeah and it's a 10b front

    Another question I can't seem to find the "kit" price for Dana 44/10b crossover kit. I found it for the D60, but not the 10b. Also need to do a steering brace. Is just the bolt in kit ok along with crossover?

    To truely protect your frame, the weld in and bolt in kits are recommended.

    There is no bolt on crossover kit for a Dana 44 or 10 bolt because it requires different, flat top knuckles, machining, threading of the knuckles, etc. With the D60 you pull the plate off, bolt on the arm, and hook up the drag link. Not so with the 44 or 10 bolt, and thus no kit would really be complete without a different knuckle.

    Now does anybody run crossover plus their front axle 1" forward. Any clearance issues anywhere?

    I replied in the ORD forum too, but didn't mention that the axle is 1.5" forward too.

    OK one more question. With the zero rates will I need a steering arm spacer for draglink clearance??

    Thanks

    That's something I've been wondering myself. I ordered my crossover yesterday and I asked the guy and he said honestly there's no way to predict it, it depends on the thickness of your current springs. Not sure if it's the same for the 10 bolt, but I'd avoid the spacer at all costs if possible. My friend had one on a D44 years ago on the driver's side and it sheared the studs off at one point!!
