    I got my new D44 in so I now have matching gears and 8 lug all around friday night. No more stupid sway bar! Now whenever I hit a bump it jerks to the left or right. I haven't got it aligned yet though. Also it has a dropped steering arm which is too tall for my lift and the drag link sits a little high on it (plug broke a leaf on that side saturday while playing so it sits even lower now so will ordaer a real 4" kit). i go the steering shock on it. Any ideas why it has bum steer so bad? alignment maybe?

    I just put my new d44 in too. So i can i ahve 8 lug and 4.10s all the way around. BUmpsteer could be from the draglink being misaligned. I also have no swaybar.

    Get the drag link aligned and make sure you double check all the frt end/steering components are still tight after swapping them.
