    i just priced everything out yeasterday from shackerbuilt..they are a lil cheaper than ord (plus only about 45 mins from me)you need a arm (75),drilla nd tap the knuckle (50),gotta get a knuckle,draglink and ends (150),depending on lift a spacer and studs (60) and might as well get balljoints at the same time...it all adds up to be a whole lotta $$$ but i really need it now cause i have no steering geometry left...

    here is the pic of the arm to get, $135 for the arm and stud kit shipped from sky manufacturing.

    you also need a flattop d44 knuckle to attach the arm to. they come about on here once in a while, on ebay quite a bit. then you need a pitman arm and a draglink. i could make 2 draglinks when i go to make mine.

    I have some pics of my WFO stuff posted here:

    I think the total was 110 for the arm, 65 for the drill and tap and ball joint install, 70-75 for the pitman ( jeep tj/yj arm ) and 175 for the drag link with the shorter rod ends. What is that 425? Prices on the drag link are a guess but it was no more than 200. 77 blazer though with a d44. Not a jimmy. Not like there is a difference. You have to use a d44 knuckle anyway. I highly recommend WFO.
