Re: CROSS OVER

I have not. You may want to check ORU, I think that they offer a kit.

Re: CROSS OVER

Instead of the steering arm being linked to the drivers side spindle, it is connected to the passenger side spindle. This changes the angle/legnth of the steering arm thing, and keeps the steering from being affected by axle articulation so much. Also helps a lot to reduce bump steer.

Re: CROSS OVER

See i built mine it just took a crossover rod i turned it is a lathe and cut it down and one of the ends is welded solid and the other screws in and out for adjustment. I ended up taking to steering arms and a pitman arm and graftd one of the steering arms to the pitman arm and the other to the knuckle and measured my rod and put it all together the only problem the i ran into is when i built i did not make my pitman arm long enough and i had to go back and extend it if you are wanting to try this, with every thing set up right your steering rod should be about paralel withe the axel. All in all it helped my chevy has 14" of lift and 39x15.50x15 tire on a 15x15 rim and it steers like a dream. and if you can weld and have so extra parts around it is really cheap. Try it.

Re: CROSS OVER

got any pics of your setup? 15" lift to fit 40s? I got 7" and 40s no problem, your truck must be huge.
