your draglink and tierod are both attached to arms on top of the Knuckle NOT the oem location....

if just the draglink is then it is crossover


good luck

Ok so what does it do ?
And high steer is usually just in lifted trucks ? because my uncle and my dad didn't know wat it was and there not dumb when it comes to trucks and such.
I'm going off the asomtion that "High" steer would be for bigger trucks with fairly big lifts.

From what i've been told is it helps with getting rid of bumpsteer and it also puts all the steering linkage above the leafsprings to help keep it away from rocks The crossover you still have the draglink in front of the diff which is damn near the center of harms way.Hope that helps

Just read this over again i didn't mean to sound sarcastic in this reponse

Crossover (highsteer) steering systems replace the factory push-pull system eliminating about 90% of bump-steer. With high steer crossover steering, the tie rod is moved up above the leaf springs. This places the rod out of the way of most trail obstacles and provides a clean factory look

sky sucks... they dont make there own arms, there just a warehouse. all pro dosent make there own arms either, they get them made in mexico. OTT makes there own arms in there teeny tiny machine shop on mitchel island in richmond. I would go through them. Even if they are a little more expensive they are stronger and its definatly worth it


plus their canadian[36]

i thought only all pros leaf springs were made in mexico, they had quality issues so went back to the states? and sky's look fine, and they arent too badly priced.

why does sky suck because they don't make their own arms?
Does it matter where they are made? Its all about trail proven strength.

the quality isnt assured all they do is put them in a box and ship them

ott makes everything in house and their quality is second to none
