    6\" Lift ?\'s

    On a 6" lift should i twist the axle housing a little bit to make the drivelines have less of an angle? And if so that would mean i would have to move the leaf spring mounts to right? And whats the best steering correction part?

    If you get new 6" springs, they should come with angle shims, if not, just put some angle shims in between the springs and perch. Most people jsut go with a new steering arm, but you may also have to get a new draglink. Just remember you want to keep your draglink parallel /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    You don't want a bent draglink. Go with the steering arm, and a 2" drop pitman arm if necessary.
