    it rides real good. A lot better than it did before the lift, but then again, the old leafs were shot. Its deffenitly taller than the 4in. that was advertised...more like 6-7in

    How did you end up getting the steering arm off? I had to use a sawsall to cut through the taper wedges, but it took a long time.

    I used the Rough Country lift also, I really like how it handles now.

    first I soaked it with penetrating oil the day before, then again when I started taking stuff off, then again before I attempted to get "it" off. I took the nuts off, beat the hell out off the arm with a hammer, put more pen. oil on it, went back in about 30-45 minutes, and beat some more..after about a hour of beating (5 minutes here-5 minutes there) around the edges and stuff..the wedges popped loose, I screwed them off with a small screwdriver (jammed into the slot to spread the cone) and pulled the arm off.. It sounds bad, but actually wasnt bad at all, just get some good penetrating oil, and put a lot into the slots around the cones. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif
