    I got my steering arm from Sky and I pieced together the rest of the stuff.

    Made my own draglink using .250 wall 1.5" DOM and weld in adapters, superlift pitman arm, used 2wd sector, bought my tierod, got TRE's from Checker. I set my crossover system up so all the TRE's are the same. They are all right hand thread and are all the same part number. This makes it so I only need 1 spare TRE.

    I also found them local after the fact at 4 Wheelers Supply and Offroad (the guys who built the Ultimate Taco for Peterson's)
