    I'm headed to the wrecking yard in about 1/2 hour to get one myself. I found a steering box in a 2wd 74 suburban that im gonna grab. I bought the sky drag link with the big bend in it so i can prolly get away without much drop. I'm only running 8" of suspension lift with 3" of body.
    I looked a couple of days ago and for me, i need a ford pitman arm cause all the chevy ones have the ball joint built into the pitman arm and as you can see i have the ball joint on my draglink.
