    With 5" - 6" lift in the front, will I need a spacer under my pass side steering arm for the draglink?

    I'm not too familiar with the 10 Bolt / Dana 44 crossover set ups, but I think you'll need to lose the sway bar. I think .....

    With the zero rate in the front, you probably will need to space the arm up. That's not a great situation, but it can be workable. Especially if you do some easy tricks like tack welding the arm and spacer together.

    Thats actually not a zero rate per say....it started life as a 1" thick piece of steel, but I milled in a 3* taper.
