    Finally got the chance to take my Jimmy out this weekend, found out a lot of things I still need to do to my rig. (Don't we all?) Anyways, the item requiring immediate attention is where I've destroyed my driver side front shock from draglink contact. Obviously cross-over steering would fix this issue, but I don't have the money to address this at the time and I don't have the money to keep replacing front shocks.

    Sooo...anybody else have this problem? I run a 4" steering correction block under my steering arm, but do I need to run a dropped pitman arm as well?

    Thanks,

    Lance

    I don't know your exact setup, but i had a 4" lift with dual shocks and I had this problem. I removed the front shock and the problem was solved. You have three choices: 1. crossover 2. relocate or remove a shock 3. Buy stock in rancho. Good luck.
