<font color="green"> Crossover is not necessary on a street driven truck with only 6" of lift. Normal steering correction wil do it for you. </font>

Re: dana 60 crossover steering options?

What makes one decide it's, "Necessary"? I thought before we decided that it doesn't help with bumpsteer, simply allows you to turn when crossed up, which if you don't have a very flexible suspension, I suppose it doesn't matter.

I am considering it on my truck due to the fact that all they make for the D60 for steering correction is a block.
