RuffStuff

Next on list. Trying to figure out tie rod and drag link. Looking at GM 1 ton Y link from RuffStuff Specialties. Options are over the knuckle and under the knuckle. Not sure how to determine which one I need. I'll call them Monday...

Yeah, thought about that. Still really close tolerance. I really don't know how much movement the packs have and how close the parts can ride next to them. I will give your suggestion a go sometime this week.

Read my axle invoice and it shows they used BJ's rear disc conversion. I looked up the part on BJ's site and saw their recommended caliper placement. Haven't got to it yet but it looks like an easy fix. It appears the calipers merely need to be rotated down placing them away from the leafs.

The linkage didn't fit pitman arm. Ordered a 7 degree tapper bit and reamed it out ever so slightly so the cotter pin fit. Getting ready to custom fit the tie-rods.

Just ever so slightly over reamed the pitman arm. Enough for the cotter pin to fit and too much to allow for enough pivot. Looking at maybe another drop pitman arm even taller than the one I bought with the 6" lift. Other options are another pitman arm same as the one I have and ream ever so slightly less, or, use RuffStuffs sleeve they sell for things like this.
