picked up my d60 and it has crossover steering arm on the axle already... and now i will pick up 2wd steering box for it..

do i need to replace the pitman arm to other arm? or the stock factory 2wd steering box will be perfect for it?


thanks in advance :)

I used a Ford 4" drop pitman arm, like a 79-85 or something. Do a search that info has been covered a million times.

I used a 6" drop pitman arm of a 2wd sub. Keeps my draglink almost parallel to the ground with my 6" of lift. Most will probably work though.

wondering why half of the people say keep it straight as possible and other half use drop ones??

what turning radius do u have??

right now i have 10 bolt and regular steering stuff with the lift i have.. i need like 6 lanes to do full u turn if not more..

so hopefully the d60 i got with crossover arm on it.. will make it lot less :)

Just installed cross over on my truck last week and I'm very happy with it. Really helped with turning radius. I used a 4 inch drop arm off a ford truck. Worked good with my 8 inch springs and 3 inch 60 block.

Hey Dan b, Before i put on that stupid ranch dual front shock kit I could make a u turn in the middle of your average residential street(2 parking lanes and 1.5 driving lanes). Now i need a residential intersection :rolleyes: .

What ORD told me was the later chevies needed a bent draglink to clear engine x-member. I ran the 6" drop pit to level out the draglink and provide furhter engine x-member clearance to play it on the safe side. Every so often i will jump her a little :flipoff2:
I like the way she came out.

When I did one of my crossovers, I used the Ford pitman arm on a 2WD Chevy box and had to drill the taper out on the pitman, as the Ford uses a different DLE. The Superlift #1104 drop pitman arm (for older full sized Jeep Wagoneers) has the correct DLE end taper (just like the Chevs) and works great.
