    I have gone through a lot of threads on the placement of rams but all or most of the rams i see are the 1.5" or 1.75" bore cylinders. I would like to find some good clear pics of what people are doing when mounting 2" bored chief style rams. The ones that have a clevis end not heim. I need to see the actual mounting points with or without ram mounted. This is for a d44 axle by the way but it doesnt matter as far as pics go. Thanks!

    With a 6" lift I had no problem with the ram as high as it is, but now with about a 3-4" lift and soft springs i have a problem hitting my oil pan. this setup i think would work well with Histeer as you could just replace the heim at the knuckle w/ a clevis at the Tierod.
