Crossover Steering

Crossover steering is one where the pitman arm on the frame mounted steering box provides a linear draglink movement that is parallel to the axle housing. The draglink connects to the passenger-side knuckle, or sometimes, a point on the tie rod that connects the two knuckles together. This configuration is much better suited for situations where greater front axle and suspension movement are desired. There are many aftermarket kits to convert vehicles from push-pull to crossover type steering.
