Re: cross over steering

At the Zukimelt, one of the guys (Tim Porter I think) broke his "cross over steering" arm. Don't remember the brand though. Seems like it was the one that is "cast" rather than "milled". Anyone else have a better memory
about this?

Later,

Re: cross over steering

I have the Higher Heights setup and it is incredible. I havent had any problems with mine but it is cast and therefore weaker than a forged unit.

Re: cross over steering

Hi everyone,
I'm new here but I felt compelled to reply to this question. I am running the Breeze industries crossover steering and as far as I'm concerned it is the best bar none. It is machined from one piece of solid stock instead of cast like the Heigher Heights one, it has six bolts holding it on: two into the caliper, and four into the steering knuckle (it completely replaces the passenger side kingpin). The Heigher Heights one has the two bolts into the caliper but then uses a cheesy bracket to attach on top of the kingpin, this is not even close to as strong as the Breeze one.

I have had no problems at all with the Breeze steering, since adding it the steering is actually easier with 31"s than it was with stock tires and I have noticed no bumpsteer.

The kit is a available for $273 from North Coast off-road as opposed to the Heigher Heights one for $325 from Petroworks. About the only thing that I can see the Heigher Heights one has going for it is that it includes a new tie rod, which the Breeze one doesn't.

I have talked to the Breeze guys about their products and they really did their homework with this one.

Re: cross over steering

I concur with Ian all the way -- the Breeze kit is excellent & I highly recommend it. BTW, it may make you abandon thoughts of power steering after you put one on -- it makes <font color=red>That</font color=red> much difference.

Re: cross over steering

I agree with Ian I have the breeze steering as well and it is ultra beefy.

I cannot comment on the Higher Heights set-up though.
