My steering sucks and I have alot of links in a very tight space. I am thinking converting to hydro steering to eliminate clearance problems and lack of steering strength.
My setup is a fullwidth rc60 with avalanch highsteer arms for crossover steering. Box is f250. I am running coils with a three link and panhard bar.

I know I want the danfoss orbital for the load sensing.
I ideally would like to run the dual ended ram, but have a problem with mounting. Either on the stock locations or the highsteer arms , which are most likly to weak. The other possibility is running a single ram and retaining my tierod.
Here are some pics. How would you mount a double ended ram? Is my only choice using a single ram to the stock hole in the knuckle?
Any ideas welcome.

I just am not sure if my highsteer arms will be up to it because everyone says the avalanche arms are weak.
Ofcourse everyones opinions on the avalanche arms could be bs.:confused:

Have you thought about hydro assist instead of full hydro? I completed an assist sytem on my EB and itseems to work very well. Steering is crisp from low speed to going do the freeway at 65-70 mph. You could easily mount the ram from a diff. gaurd like Avalanche sales then to the tie rod. The ram mount up and out of the way from getting smashed. I guess it all depends on what/where you are using your rig the most. Just my $.02.
I was thinking of this awhile ago, but realized my eb will never be driven on the road. I really want to get rid of my draglink and tierod. In my last trip I slightly bent my radius arm resulting in my drag hitting my panhard bar and tierod hitting my crossmember.

So I think I will be going with a dual sided ram. For clearance issues and for the poosibility I move the axle forward more ini the future.
