Are steering correction kits a necessity with a 4 inch lift /forums/images/graemlins/confused.gif?
Yes they are needed. The correct arm came with the rough country kit I installed on mine. Depending on the lift you choose, the arm may or may not be included. That is something you will want to ask about if it isnt otherwise stated that the arm is included.
The suspension arm is needed for the 4 inch lift , but anything else to retain the full turn circle? /forums/images/graemlins/confused.gif
Once the steering arm is replaced and the drag link adjusted to recenter the steering its pretty close to the same turning circle.
Yeah once you have a raised steering arm it should correct back to stock. What will change the turning raidis from that point will be tires size and wheel width and offset. A 31x10.5 inch tire on a stock 3.5 offset 8 inch rim will have a considerably tighter turning radius that a 35x12.5 on a 10 inch rim with the same offset.
Separate names with a comma.
