    I just lifted my truck and I have 2 issues. First one is I went with a 6" leaf pack up front and a 8" in the rear and it still sags like an 1" lower in the rear. What should I do to fix it and why do you think its still sagin? Problem 2, the steering is super dangerous. Its all over the place at high speeds and turns like butter. What can I do to tighten up the steering? Thanks for the help.

    Bad bushings usually means shady steering.

    As for the sag... i have a 6 inch front/rear and it seems to be level. Did you use blocks?

    If its just an inch (and you don't have any blocks) get a set of zero rates from ORD. Do a search and you will find tons of posts.

    Did you use a raised steering arm or drop drag link to change the steering geometry back to normal?? Its a must with a 6 inch lift!!

    Zero rates, hmmm ok. What does ORD stand for and where can I get the number for them. I dont have a lot of time to spend looking on here because I am really busy running my other site www.dezertrangers.com which is my first and biggest passion, the dezert scene. I bought this just to lift, daily drive and possibly to use as a tow rig. Also if I wanted a longer shackle who would I get them from and which ones do you guys recomend, thanks again.
