    Ive got a 91 jimmy with 6" lift. Used to be 4". With the 4" lift , i installed a corrective device that bolts to the top of the knuckle.(sorry not sure what this part is called) Is this enough to correct the geometry, or can you use other parts to help also? Seems like i dont have turning radius that i used to have.

    Sounds like you put a rised steering arm on. You could also get a drop draglink or drop pitman arm. On my old k5 with 6" lift, I had a rised steering arm, and also a drop draglinl and my steering was pretty good.

    x2 on the drop pitman arm and raised steering arm if x-over not an option.
