    I have 4" rancho springs up front and just ordered my stuff from rockstomper to go x-over (not hi-steer, just the regular stuff). Question: anyone out there use zero rates in their front spring packs AND have x-over? If so, did it cause any clearance problems with the drag link or anything? Rockstomper makes a 1" spacer for the steering arm... but I asked them about it and they weren't sure if it would be needed and/or work or not (with the zero rates). the draglink is gonna be one of the bent ones like they show on their site so it will clear the x-member.

    anyway, anyone done this? If so, pics? results? ideas? thoughts? help! /forums/images/icons/wink.gif

    If you have a D60 front axle you will be fine. /forums/images/icons/laugh.gif

    what about a 10 bolt or d44?
    how do those zero rates work anyway?
