    Just get a block? Cheapest place to get one, or who has one lying around after going crossover? There is a trip in 2 weeks and I am dying to get this thing put in....

    I don't have all the scratch for all the crossover stuff right now....

    the pitman arm is easy to install than block. 1 nut and 1 bolt. then its off. as for block 4 nuts and studs out and in. more time. i would get the arm. and thay are both about the same price.

    Stay away from the dropped draglink ... you'll experience the true meaning of "bump steer" with one. Stick with block or better yet, dropped steering arm.

    I've never had problems with my Skyjacker drop pitman arm which has been on my K30 for over 9 years now. :thinking:

    Much better. I agree. Stay away from the drop drag link. Those are junk. Had one and never will again.
