We talked today, he is 3 weeks out approximately on the crossover steering arm, which I dont understand what it is? can you explain this and why I need to change from what came off the superduty?

we planned it to be 4" kit with 2" leafs roughly. most the stuff he can have ready by the end of next week.

The hi-steer ARM? The stock axle is not setup for crossover steering, this hi-steer ARM will allow the drag link to go over the leaf spring. Stock would probably hit the leaf springs

OH! that be the issue there. Now I understand, Never thought of leafs, ya know there aint any there now to think about!

Hey I asked Jesse but he may not know. the rear yoke on the drive line that bolts to the companion flange is too small on my original drive line. I figure I need the f250 yoke ends and u-joint. is this a correct assumption?

Do you know how much excess I should leave for forward movement on the slip yoke? If i cut 2" off my drive line, I would be able to bolt it but there would be instantaneous binding and shoving into the t-case.

I'm not exactly sure about the slip yoke, and yes you need a f250 flange for you driveshaft to bolt it to the 10.5, or a f250 driveshaft with your slip yoke welded. To it. I like this method because f250 driveshaft is stronger.

I think the slip yoke only goes into the t-case about 2" max

By end of today I should have a better ETA on calipers.
By tomorrow afternoon if parts show up on time, I should have a working driveline.

Update: Calipers showed up yesterday, need the litany of parts for the brakes now, basically a complete rebuild kit is needed as well as the mounting brackets and bolts. Got my local guy on it, hopefully he can find a local vendor if not I'll have to look at rock auto and see if I can figure out all I need in one shot. I hate forgetting things.

Update: Finished rear up, but dark out. Have a slight rub sound, not sure if its critical or just the dust shields touching the rotors. dust shields were hammered very badly and folded very tightly over the rotors when I picked it up.

Axle's painted, gonna clear coat it tomorrow and probably take a picture.
