    Those are stupidlift 2 inchers

    I am getting it aligned tomorrow. I have put new rod ends all around, new tie rod from WFO concepst( good guys, great product, excellent customer service)after that then I will probably do the kingpins and bushings

    if dooing kink pins dont for get the special tools and those suckers are around 450-500ftlbs wow. and as for alignment i work at a shop and you should do all frt work and then get alignment so you dont mess up specs and if the parts are worn that bad the alignment will be off with the new parts installed on the axle. just a sugestion.

    One trick I've seen people use is if it turns out that your kingpins are in good shape, put a fender washer or two under the kingpin cap, this will put more pressure on the spring and bushing. While I don't recommend it, I have seen it work for some of my friends.
