In my case a D60 is a somewhat popular axle, so I used what everyone else does. Off the top of my head a D44 will use a 6" stroke, while a D60 is 8"

RE: Hydraulic Steering Assist
I had everything in and working, then ran into issues with the steering box. After a few miles problems started by not turning all the way to the right, then progressed to crunching and popping, and finally locked up and wouldn't turn at all. So I tapped the old box and stuffed it back in. Sometime this week the broken box will be torn down, and hopefully fixed.

Welded one ram mount to the tie rod clamp and the other to the diff cover. The cover is 1/2" and 3/8" plate steel and is structurally sound enough to do so. Please dont try this with a stock sheetmetal cover, bad things will happen.

So far the setup seems to work well, any trace of bump steer is gone. I drove the burban through the ditch in front of my house, and with the front end stuffed it will turn side to side with one finger on the wheel, where before it was a struggle to do so.

I'll be looking to do this on the pathy at some point. Going to have to do some research on the pump and steering box though.
