I have a D60 on a '84 chevy crewcab that I've installed a high steer crossover steering kit and wish to add hydro assist. From searching forums, the general recommendation for a D60 ram was an 8" throw. Well I found out this must be for a stock position tierod because with high steer the tierod is moved back towards the kingpin pivot point which changes the geometry and now an 8" ram is too much. I have about 4" of lock to lock steering travel. I've been told that if I use a ram that has a longer reach than my steering stops then I'll break things cause the ram will win the tug of war. I'm wondering why you can't just be careful and stop turning once you feel you've hit the steering stops and the system starts squeeling. I already have the 8" ram and need recommendations before I mess things up.
