All Solid Axle king pin Dana 60 Ford, Dodge, and Chevy Trucks and Conversions.
You will also lose the ability to run the factory style sway bar, we recommend the Currie Anti Rock
Steering Links are trimmable, we generally give at least an inch on each side extra to be safe.
All Chevy/GMC trucks we form the drag links to clear the cross member under the engine, the formed end will be closest to the pit man arm UNLESS ITS A CUSTOM REQUEST OR VERY LOW LIFT.
67-87 Chevy/GMC: Will need to switch steering box's to a 2wd box in order to install crossover steering. You will also loose the ability to run the factory style sway bar.Links are trim-able, we generally give at least an inch on ea side extra to be safe. Sky Manufacturing now offers a Chevy/Gmc steering box brace kit as an add on to the crossover steering kit.
88-2010 Chevy/GMC: 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.
Dodge 88-92: Steering kits require relocation of steering box to the 2wd location.
Sky Manufacturing can also custom build a kit to fit almost any axle and vehicle combo, example is 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
If you have a ball joint style Ford Dana 60, 92-04 axle, check out in our Ford section by clicking HERE. There you will find Sky Manufacturing's new Ball Joint Dana 60 Ford Over the Spring Steering Conversion. We machine your knuckle for a keyed 5 stud steering arm. This 5 stud keyed system is the strongest bolt on system we have encountered. We use our Chrome moly 9/16ths Dana 44 studs and conical washers. Kit will correct for a 7 inch lift with stock pit man arm.
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 are far less expensive than any comparable USA made kits on the market, and are very high in demand!
