    Pic of new Tuff Country 6\"

    Put the 6" TC lift on yesterday. Went real smooth. I posted a pic down below.

    I do have one moronic question though. I installed a 4" raised steering arm with the kit. I did a search and this should be the correct set up. With the wheels straight ahead, my steering wheel is now upside down. Also the turning radius to the right is not nearly as good as the radius to the left. Do I need to adjust my draglink?

    Yep! That's how you re-center your wheel. /forums/images/graemlins/cool.gif Sounds like you need to adjust the drag link to be longer. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    Nope, you're thinking about Rough Country...Tuff Country springs (EZ-Rides) are some of the softest on the market. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    And RiceDaddy - VERY NICE /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif...(kinda wish I could see the whole truck on my computer screen, but whatever /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif)
