    8\" suspension steering corrections and driveline.

    I know that I will definately need a steering arm and drag link, but is there anything else I might have missed? Also, with the driveline.......I currently have a t-case drop and know that I will need to get my driveshafts lengthened and converted to 3/4 ton u-joints. Is there anything else I can do to get the angles a little better including the t-case and new driveshafts? Any help would be greatly appreciated. I plan on going to pick up my 38's this weekend.

    With an 8" lift, crossover is the only way to go.

    <font color=green> Well i have read some articles on Offroad.com with Potent Rodent, and you may want to check them out. You may want to ask abouit a drop Pitman arm, and a steering block to help with driveline angle in the front. Also you might want to look into a CV joint for the rear driveshaft to help with the angle you will be running.
