    Lifted my blazer 4 inches, not much but the steering sucks.if I can't find a good after market steering for my truck.
    I am considering A three link with bronco coils and dodge steering arms. Any thoughts or suggestions would be great.

    2 options here either a high steering arm or go with cross over all together and you will have a real nice steering system, not cheap though.

    got a raised steering arm for the nuckle. But it doesn't cut it. I have a few friends who wheel full size and the steering isn,t sufficient for any of us.

    You will need a 2wd steerng box, a drag link, pitman arm from a ford van, and a steering arm from Offroad Desgin or one similar.

    You will need a flat top pass. side knuckle and the arm will mount on that like your dr. side arm now.
