I have 2 types of high steer setups sitting on the floor of my truck right now.
If it's a king pin type, try s&r customs, or mud child here. I got a set of there's. simple, and strong.

What ever makes your drag link the flatest / closest to level with the ground will be the best and most noticeable on the road

high steer is simply the tie rod bar that goes between both knuckle's being lifted up higher ie with 2 arm's that mount on top of you knuckle's

http://www.northwestfab.com/complete60kit.html scroll down all the info is under that link

crosser over give's you one high arm that mounts on top the kinpin on the pass side like this

Those axles are crossover to start with. if your going to lift it or do the shackle swap, then yes. If your going stock height, then no, it'll just fuck you up.

all this talk about "cross over" and high steer, but nobody has touched the most important thing..

the angle fo your DRAG LINK.

you want you DRAG LINK as parallel to the earth as possible.

If you can get your drag link pretty flat, without high steer, you don't really need to spend the money on the bling parts.

I think u could just slam a drop pitman arm on and be ok with a 4 inch lift idk if they make a drop draglink for the fords and if they do idk how strong it would be I'd try and stay stock for cost efficiency but if u can get some cheep histeer shit it makes nice fer wheelin
