    I think I am going to get these I just have a few questions for any who have this. First it states that the left hand side does not come with a Jam nut. Can I get one at NAPA or should I pay the extra for there. Does anyone know how much that would be? Second Steve listed a part for a 85 Blazer and a 91 dodge. My truck is older than his its a 78. So should I just get a new passenger for a 78 or will the 85 and 91 work with my older truck? Did you have any problems putting it in. It seems pretty easy. I just wanted to check with you guys before I ordered it this morning.

    When I ordered my rock rod, it came with the missing Jam Nut you will need. Yes, an 85' will still work with your 78'. It is a very easy modification. Good Luck

    I second what Blazer boy said! :)

    One word of advice. I bought a TRW tie-rod from Advanced and the threads dont fit as nicely as the Moog one I got from Auto Zone, which was actually cheaper!

    when I put my rock rod on it went on 89 k5 with the 10 B, and then I did a 3/4 ton conversion for the rear axle, and it is now on a D44 from a 76... still fits perfect.

    now I am running the 2 ends that were recommended... also I like <a target="_blank" href=http://www.off-road.com/chevy/reviews/rockstomper/>off-road.com's review</a> much better then the one listed here...

    For the Stabilizer Kit I need the Pin style or the eye style?
