(((NOTE: Steering kits are built to order and take up to 5 days to build. Due to confusion, this does not include weekends and other lead times noted on the web site, these kits cost far less than any comparable USA made kits on the market, and are very high in demand!)))

(The formed end will be closest to the pit man arm.)
-You will lose the ability to run the factory style sway bar, we recommend the Currie Anti Rock.
High steer kit Fitment
67-87 Chevy/GMC vehicles will need to switch steering box's to a 2wd box in order to install crossover steering.
88-2010 Some GMC/Chevy steering box's use a 3 relief pit man arm, these will need to be swapped to a 4 relief sector shaft or swap the entire box.
73-91 Frame reinforcement plates
78-79 F-250 and F-350 Ford trucks will require re indexing the pitman arm 90 degree's, from front to back stock over to side to side.
78-79 Ford F-150 simply requires installing new pitman arm in stock configuration.
Ball joint style Ford Dana 60, 92-04 axle, (also Dana 50 Super duty 99-04) check it out in our Ford section by clicking HERE. Here you will find Sky Manufacturing's new Ball Joint Dana 60 Ford Over the Spring Steering Conversion.
Dodge trucks require relocating the steering box to 2wd location, simply remove the factory plate under the steering box and reinstall the steering box. On some Dodge trucks when converting to full high steer we have found it necessary to trim and reform the engine cradle on lower lift heights.
Sky Manufacturing can also custom build a kit to fit almost any axle and vehicle combo ( an example would a Jeep YJ Wrangler with a Chevy Dana 60). By machining the Jeep pit man arm, to accept a GM tie rod end, we can make a custom drag link length, and bingo you have a Dana 60 Jeep YJ Crossover kit.
Steering Arm Info:
Our steering arms are CNC machined out of ASTM A572 Grade 50 steel. We previously have used 1018 steel, but switched to a more rigid material (A572). Grade 50 is a very strong low allow steel that fulfills our exceptionally high strength requirements, and is particularly strong for applications in which it is riveted or bolted. ASTM A572 Grade 50 is considered a "workhorse" grade and is widely used in many applications. Steel mills produce channel and heavy beams with Grade 50. It is commonly used in structural applications, heavy construction equipment, building structures, heavy duty anchoring systems, boom sections, structural steel shapes, and applications that require high strength per weight ratio.
*Tensile strength: 65,000 psi
*Yield strength: 50,000 psi
