    It is suggested that you use a drop pitman arm becuase the higher slope angle your tie rod has (from box to knuckle) the less turning ability you have.

    You won't need anything regarding the suspension or steering if you're doing a body lift. If your truck already has a 4" lift it should already have a raised steering arm...most kits come with them. The body lift only lifts the body from the frame.

    Oh my bad I read that wrong...what he said...if yer already rockin a 4" lift I'd imagine its there but for body lifts no,no steering corection needed, except to the steering shaft which gets elongated.
