i want to know what steering components are needed for an 8" lift?
crossover steering and a drop pitman.
or do like i did, i have full lock to lock steering.
ORD's High steer
blam pimp steering.
If you wheel it Crossover is the only solution period.
If you don't wheel you could do a steering arm and a dropped pitman arm.
Wheeling is defined as trails that would require suspension movement and steering at the same time
If you wheel it really hard and it doesnt see the street=Full Hydro.
i do mild wheeling in my 1/2 ton burb but im building my dream burb over the summer. i bought a six inch lift but now that i think about it i want an 8 so im trying to find out which parts i can keep.
Crossover is really nice just for daily driving as well. I am going to put it on my 89 Crew cab as well, but I dont whheel it. It tightens up the steering with new joints everywhere, makes it more "new carish" feeling, and it performs better than push pull steering.
Where and how do you plan to wheel? I run a 9" lift on my '85 and for mud and sand it's fun but don't expect to get much flex, just an altitude adjustment.
If you're like me and only plan on doing the dunes and some local mud then altitude is your friend but if you are thinking about trails you may want to reconsider that 8" lift.
