Kingpin Dana 60 Crossover Steering Kit

Dana 60 Crossover Steering Kit includes:

  • Billet ASTM A572 Grade 50 passenger side steering arm,
  • Drag Link,
  • Pitman Arm,
  • Tie Rod Ends
  • Stud Kit.

Kit fits:
All Solid Axle king pin Dana 60 Ford, Dodge, and Chevy Trucks and Conversions.

You will lose the ability to run the factory style sway bar, we recommend the Currie Anti Rock.
Steering Links can be trimmed as needed, we generally give at least an inch extra on each side to be safe.

67-87 Chevy/GMC:
Will need to switch the steering box to a 2wd box in order to install crossover steering.

Sky Manufacturing now offers a Chevy/GMC Steering Box Brace Kit as an add on to the crossover steering kit. Brace fits 73-87 factory solid axle truck / SUV frame.

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.

88-2010 Chevy/GMC:  
Steering boxes use a 3 relief pitman arm, these will need to be swapped to a 4 relief sector shaft or swap the entire box.

Dodge 73-92:  
Steering kits require relocation of steering box to the 2wd location.

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.

Other Applications:
Sky's Offroad Design can also custom build a kit to fit almost any axle and vehicle combo. For example a Jeep YJ Wrangler with a Chevy Dana 60. By machining the Jeep pitman arm, to accept a GM tie rod end, we can make a custom length drag link, and bingo you have a Dana 60 Jeep YJ Crossover kit.

If you have a ball joint style Ford Dana 60, 92-04 axle, check out our Ford 92-12 BallJoint 60 Steering Section. 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 Chromoly 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 in very high demand!
***The knuckle machining shop only operates Monday through Thursday and does not operate on holidays***

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

Some info on our Stud Kits:
Sky's Off Road Design Dana 60 1/2" high steer stud kit.
The fact is, stock Dana studs were not designed for extreme use.
So we fired up the SL-30 CNC lathe, grabbed some Chromoly bar and started making our own studs.

We start by cutting and threading the material, then it goes to heat treat for through hardening and then a black oxide coating is applied. The studs have a tensile strength of about 190kpi.

Conical washers were another hard to find item. We have stared making our own, also out of chromoly. These conical washers will not distort like factory softer versions.

Includes 4: 1/2" - 20 Thread 4340 chromoly Hardened studs and 1/2" tapered nuts.

Worked great


Did not include instructions. Also, I figured I might have to cut it down a bit but the threads for the tie rods aren’t deep enough after it will be cut down so I’ll have to take it to a machine shop and have it rethreaded. Apparently it’s impossible to contact them over the phone also so I had to send an email. We’ll see how long they take to respond. The parts appear to be quality items but sure if I’ll order from them again.

Square body gm Dana 60

I originally ordered this kit from Off-road Design, which was on back order. I waited 6 weeks, each week asking for an update with little info given. I couldn’t even speak to a person, it was either email or text. This was super frustrating given this was the last component I needed for my build. I reached out the Sky and spoke to someone and explained the situation. He then verified that the had all the components in stock by physically going back to the fab shop and insured me he would hand pick them himself and get them to shipping. I canceled my order with ORD and placed my order with Sky on Tuesday and got the kit on Thursday. It was a short distance for shipping going from Oregon to Washington state, but I was surprise how fast it was. The kit bolted right up and I was driving my truck that day. Sky was easy to work with and will definitely get my business.

Hello Julian, we see your interest. At this time we're not open to Spain. We continue to learn how to grow outside of the USA, Canada, and Australia. Keep on eye out for any new announcements.

Huge lift with factory handling!

I'm running this kit on two of my f350's now and figured I'd offer my experience with this product. If you're running a lot of lift or 20" in my case, this will definitely solve your steering issues if you'd rather not run a HUGE drop pitman. Everything fit excellent while providing a good draglink angle, even with a lot of suspension lift. My other truck has a more modest 8" lift and after trying to retain the stock steering I noticed the truck had enough "tie rod roll" to cause major steering wheel play , especially scary on the freeway. Decided to order a second steering kit from SWORD to remedy the extreme draglink angle and completely solved all my handling issues. As always the production quality is top notch!
