Steering is another huge consideration when devising a solid axle recipe. If your 4x4 has rack-and-pinion steering you’ll want to upgrade to some sort of steering box for street use, and the best box will be determined by the suspension design and axle location you choose. Full hydraulic steering isn’t bad for a dedicated off-road vehicle, but experience tells us it’s not really suited for a street machine, though it can be much easier to install than a steering box and drag link.
