    It would be helpful if you filled out your profile! Also you need to do a search on this stuff, you can probably find your answers faster that way.

    So I see you folowed the advice and filled your profile.
    You are a neighbour, and there a bunch in Tracy that could help both in locating parts, shops or even helping you out do it yourself.
    Now with 39 inch tires and 6" suspension lift, it is definitely advisable to go cross over steering, but what scares me is the 4" body lift.
    Are you sure?
    Do you have pics?
    I am sure before tomorrow noon you will have a few responses from the guys in tracy or lodi, and they might be able to help you in person.

    Do a search on "Death wobble" if you have a D60 front.
