    On my 87, i didnt use the pitman arm, i used the steering arm, and i had to get new lines, your better off with new lines, and not the bracket. Also, I dropped my transfer case with the factory provided spacers ontop of the frame rail.

    Also before anyone esle says it, fill out your profile. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif and good luck

    somepeople dont mind the funky turning with no steering arm mods...

    Spend the 50 bucks and get teh steering arm... It will allow the truck to return to straight much nicer and wont jump back and forth...

    Get the stainless steel brake lines..... the brackets are cheesy!!!
    I love my 11 inch longer ss lines /forums/images/graemlins/smile.gif
