    With a top entry knuckle and a rock rod will there be clearance issues with the springs. I have 1" zero-rates moved forward 1". Do I have to get the special drop tie-rod ends for the flat tops? Any-pics with specs would be great. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif /forums/images/graemlins/woot.gif /forums/images/graemlins/peace.gif

    I still have to get a block for the steering arm to raise the arm up for the draglink clearance of the spring, but as for the Rockrod, there is no clearance problems with the spring. Does that help answer your question?

    Cool that's perfect, and you use Sky's tie rod right. /forums/images/graemlins/peace.gif

    I have the arm and the draglink, and I'm gonna order the tie-rod today. Think I need the spacer and longer stud kit too. /forums/images/graemlins/waytogo.gif

    Yeah, I was talking with sky on the phone a few days ago and he told me I should get the riser block. I just haven't done it yet.
