Re: Cross-Over Steering?\'s: Pitman arm lengths and spring over steering.

I think I understand what you are saying. I would keep the 7" p-arm and the 5.5" steering arm. A 5.5" p-arm may not allow you to go from lock to lock, right? If you look at the extreme, suppose you have a 2" p-arm. It would take a major load off the gear box but would not allow you the full travel of the steering.
