I was looking at the TT over the top steering setup and comparing it to others, and was wondering what you guys think is best. I noticed that for $20 more the calmini kit comes with both arms where the TT doesn't. And anyone running the calmini kit does it clear Rocky roads Lifted spring perches?
thanks

You know that anything from Trail Tough is top of the line. But, I'm running Rocky Roads stage 2 OTT steering and it solved all of my steering issues.

1)david,welcome to the board.glad you made it.:mrgreen:
2)i would stay clear of rocky road everything.they take for ever to get their products out after paying(months) and they have a problem standing behind their warrenties.(I will buy from calmini before them,and you know my opinion about both)
3)i can get you about 4-5 in of lift with spoa for less than $100.00 in parts.
give me a call this morning

I used Sky's cross over steering and they are beefy and really well made parts. They were cheaper and they are right down the road from my house:mrgreen: . Everything I have bought from Sky is top grade and fit perfectly. Their spring perches are the best made, IMHO.

yeah, i've heard lots of good about sky manufacturing the only reason i didn't mention them is they are $60 more than the calmini kit.

I am running rr ott stageII and I have issues. When I hit a bump going 30-35 my steering jerks wildly left to right and I have to slow down to 10 mph. I am making a panhard but I am not sure if I like rr Satge II kit. Just my 2 cents.

Check out the Gallery under Zee and you can see the Sky setup.
It is what i run on mine,i like it so far and they are a local company.
If you do go RR,i hope this is a long term project,cause they don't believe in shipping in a timely manner.

the problem that setup is only half of it is over the top,the tie rod is still under the spring to get damaged.bartmoon

I agree. I used Sky's stage 2 kit and was extremely impressed. But then my buddy does all his CAD work so I know what goes into them. Plus them being 20 miles away helps too!

I didnt like the Sky steering kit because the arms are so thick, I was unable to get a cotter pin through the TRE. The arms dont need to be that thick.
Also when installing the full Sky kit you have a hell of a time tighting the tie rod. because the stock arm is dirrectly under the sky arm and its impossible to get a socket on the TRE. The stock arm interfers with the socket and rachet.
I know Sky makes some great stuff. This is just my .02

Mine did that at first. Turned out to be a bad pitman arm
