  2. I have the stock front end for '79 K5. I will be putting a 6" lift on the truck.

    <font color="green"> I'd suggest doing a search, this has been covered alot in here, and with your front end it is fairly involved and not terribly cheap. Basically you need to swap the knuckles to a different style, have the right side one machined for a steering arm, buy the steering arm and drag link, get a 2wd steering box and pitman arm, ends for the drag link, and put it all together.</font color>
