Nope. The stock steering arm is parallel with the axle. The cross over steering arm is perpendicular to the axle. Also, if it's a ten bolt or Dana 44 the bolt pattern for the steering amr will be wrong.

Look at how your steering works now, and think about how it will have have to move with the cross over.

Here's a quick sketch of the stock and cross over...

No you need to make/buy a arm like the one I just made for mine. Also machine the "knuckle" like the 1 in this pic....
