    well i got a custom lift going on it is currently at about 13-14 inches of suspension lift, i am going to do the push-pull steering with hydro-assist with a 1" ram. i currently have the 3" block and the raised steering arm and i am still around 6" short

    same knuckle 1/2 ton or 3/4 ton but need old style dana 44 units with flat on pass side and get both as the tie rod goes on other side of knuckle arm. then have it drilled and taped . bolt it on.

    Articulate? With 12+" of lift? It doesn't happen :)

    I have the stock-style steering correction kit off my 12" lift I may sell separate soon if I can't sell the whole kit by the end of the month. - it comes with a drop pitman arm, drop drag link, raised steering arm and a 4" spacer block between the knuckle and steering arm.

    haha that is what i was thinking, it wont be seeing much "hard wheeling" thats what i got the blazer for, this is gonna be 90% pavement pounder 10% mudbogs thats it, so i guess i will suffer through the 10% if it gives me problems, im gonna go hydro assist anyway. i already have the raised steering arm and 3" spacer block. all i need is the draglink and the arm that goes on the steering box. if you are willing to sell me just those 2 ill give you $150.00 if that includes the shipping. i can have a check in the mail monday if you are willing. thanks
