    Hey guys, wanted to know some opinions..

    for those that don't know already I have an 82 k5, with 8 inch lift in the rear and 7 inch lift in the front. I need to correct some angles with the steering. Not ready to go crossover yet...so do I go with a drop draglink or a drop pitman arm?...I all ready have the raised steering arm..

    and where do i go to get a droped drag link and/or droped pitman arm?

    opinions and sugestions would be apreciated..as i've alomst got her back on the road..:wink1:

    a dropped pitman arm is better then a dropped drag link. the draglink can turn on its side therefore negating the drop. I ran the stock style push pull setup with 8" springs. I had a 4" raised arm and a 2" dropped arm. worked good and the angles were fine.

    Good luck. Is that you in your avatar?

    Most lift companies sell them for about 60 bucks or Im sure ORD can hook you up. FYI any 73-91 blazer , burban, or truck (stopping at 87 for the truck) will fit for your application.
