Crossover

How imperative is it to have crossover steering with lift o 8-10 " and 38.5 like how much steering issues do you have if it's not under articulation ? Like as long as ur stuff is tight you shouldn't get the bump
steer and
wobble or is crossover mandatory?

it costs the same to do crossover as to do front back
why do it twice?

you will get bumnpsteer no matter how new your stuff is.
bump steer is from having a short draglink at a bad angle

Y is crap. it still allows the toein to change as the axle moves up and down = bump steer

T is good for a lower vehicle. 77-79 ford 1/2tons and broncos use T
a taller vehicle will get a better draglink angle going to the top of the knuckle, and you get a longer drag link by running it to the knuckle mounted arm instead of to the TRE in a T setup

i ran the push pull setup with 8"_ of lift and 38.5s it was allright on the road and very mild trails i switched to a crossover setup to get better steering control while the front suspension is articulated (the tires tended to have a mind of their own at times as the suspension moved) it was a massive improvement even on the road the steering felt tighter and more responsive
theres my 2 cents dude hope it helps ya out

I have Hy-steer x over in my 82 Toyota, its lifted about 13".

Best upgrade yet.
No more bump steer, better turning radius, way easier to turn and death wobble gone.
