NEED HELP

Post by rubison » Thu Feb 19, 2009 8:59 pm

Does anyone have experience converting a crossover type steering to mount on top of the knuckles? My crosstube hits the SOLID diff cover when turning full left. Ive read were you can ream out the holes and mount it on top, it would then clear the diff cover. Any ideas?

You have to use 1 ton TRE's or get inserts.

These guys sell a nice kit/parts.If you don't want to buy from them they do have a nice PDF of install directions so you'll know what's needed.

Found inserts and you dont need 1 ton TREs, see Goferitoffroad.com. Had to buy the swaybar mount brackets at JKS, extended 2".
