    I am looking at outting 4" lift springs front and rear on my 70. Will I need a 4" drop pitman arm? This rig is manual steer, BTW, so I foresee problems finding an arm for it. Also, what will a 2" body lift do to my clutch linkage and column shifter???? Thanks for any help, I'm getting tired of my "burro" getting sand kicked in its face.:D

    Ohh Ohhh looks like somebody else caught the sickness. There is a way to make the symptoms go away. It will take continuous copious amounts of 3 medicines. Modifications, currency, and wheeling trips. It never goes completely away The effects are just held at bay temporarily. :haha:

    Don't want power steering or brakes. I want my braking and steering responses to be the same, whether the engine is running or not. I can feel what the truck is doing better with all manual controls. If I can't turn the wheel, there is something in the way that I need to investigate. Sides that, my little 6 popper doesn't need anything else robbing power from it.:D

    Hopefully I will get down to a shop in Montrose today to check on steering arms and a couple new heims and talk about getting some knuckles drilled. It only takes money and time and copious amounts of each!
