who made your crossover arms? It sounds like they are too low. With my All Pro arms and hi steer, I have NO problems with my tie rod hitting the springs. Do you have tie rod or heim joint ends? heims can be shimmed, but tie rod ends can't. Also, ditch the shock boots.

My Doetsch Techs can be run in either position. I'm not sure what kind of shocks those are that you have.

Because they trap any junk that gets in there against the shaft, and the shit scores the shaft, and you get leakage. <IMG SRC="smilies/eek.gif" border="0">
