    I've heard nothing but good things about BTF. Question for you, simply out of curiosity. What are the purposes of going with high steer arms? Is there any other reasons other than to, obviously, move the steering mounts up and above the springs?

    Reduction of tie rod angle to lessen the effect of bump-steer on lifted or SPOA setups.
    The closer to horizontal, the better the steering geometry.

    not to mention having steering linkage parts up and out of the way or rock damage- I've got a fabricated version of the same setup- hand steering arms out of 1" plate steel- works great!

    With cross over style steering, and leaf springs, you just about have to use high steering, to stay on top of the springs with the rods, about like the factory did on the original front ends.

    Do they have a web site with pics, or do you have pictures that you could post?
    I've just about to the point of modifying the frame.
