    O.K. I have a 4" lift... stock pitman arm... turning to the right sucks /forums/images/graemlins/eek.gif I have read that a 3" drop arm will help...Is this true??.. I know cross-over is the way to go but at this time not feasable... /forums/images/graemlins/k5.gif

    Just get a raised steering arm (the arm attached to the axle itself)--its cheaper do a search to get it off---

    Yes.. to the right it's on a dime but to the left not so good.. the link was adjusted with the wheels straight to center the steering wheel.. did I do it wrong??

    It could be off by a full turn...make sure from the center to each lock is the same amount of turns...should be aobut 1.75 each way i think
