    \'72 Blazer Steering Arm

    I recently picked up a '72 Blazer that was already lifted, but I noticed they did not correct the steering drag link angle.
    So I bought a 4" steering arm from superlift. I couldn't get the tapered split washers out of the old arm without destroying them and the new arm didn't come with new washers. Anyone know where to get them? The truck has the stock Dana 44.

    Also is there a kit for reinforcing the frame around the steering box? I notice some flexing when the wheels are turning.

    Also there is a special socket to remove thoes threaded sleaves. It looks like a deep socket with tits or tabs at the open part of the socket!
    Good luck
