Breeze X-over steering with SPUA?

Breeze X-over steering with SPUA?

Is it feasible? How much lift do you need? Big bumpstops?



Thanks,

Re: Breeze X-over steering with SPUA?

I spoke with Tim last night and with your suspension, it would appear that you'd need bump stop spacers. We'll have to measure for sure, but it sound like it would limit your wheel travel.
I ordered a Breeze drop drag link as this would seem to be the best sollution for my setup presently. My setup is in a "void", lifted enough and altered steering geometry to cause problems, yet not lifted enough for the most common sollutions..... Rats!
With any luck, I'll have the drag link by Friday and I'll let you know how I fare......

Re: Breeze X-over steering with SPUA?

I was trying to find out this info for you Crow - but guess you got it all worked out (for now or until you go SPOA).

The <font color=blue>CALMINI</font color=blue> linkage would be perfect - anyone wanna donate their Calmini Linkage Steering to the Crow Better Steering Foundation?

Call me.......

Crow,
I ran the Breeze Cross Over with the BDS springs and had no problems. And as another subliminal message all that you need is the perches and brake lines cause I have a welder and a garage !!!You're welcome anytime!

Re: Breeze X-over steering with SPUA?

The Breeze CO Steer will work with SPUA, but you need at least 4" of lift, better yet, 4.5". Crow has a unique situation. He has about 3" of lift AND the sidekick power steering. Normally a drop pitman arm would be great for the lift, but with the kick box, no such easy solution. The kick pitman arm is flat vs the samurai which is about 1.5" of drop. There just wasn't enough room to run the CO, and it was on the edge as to whether the linkage steer would have worked. Since the pitman arm is flat, the 1.5" gained there coupled with the 3" of lift comes out to 4.5" which is perfect for the Drop Drag Link, and was the most cost effective solution.

That still doesn't fix the draglink to frame clearance problem.

I have 3" lift and Kick power steering. I had to put my stock linkage back on to go wheelin' because I refuse to lower my RF bump stop 3".

Crow,

Contact Spidertrax. They can custom fabricate a Sammy drop pitman to fit the Kick steering box. That would be perfect for you.

Re: Breeze X-over steering with SPUA?

Here's another possible sollution.......

I've been playing around with the CO on a spare axle and if it were possible to mount the drag link to the knuckle arm upside down, this would allow the frame clearance needed. There is one catch, the arm is machined to accept the tapered tie rod end mounted from the top. If it would be possible to weld close the hole, then machine the correct taper so that the tie rod end could be mounted from below, this would gain the needed frame to drag link clearance needed. Any thoughts on this?
