Im expecting to have to extend the control arms, longer sway links and probably fab up drop brackets for the sway bar. Im also looking at how the pitman arm will need to drop, by the looks of it i think i may be able to bolt the steering link to the bottom side as opposed to the top side (stock is top mount), or tracking down a longer pitman arm if i must.
Anyway if anyone has the specifics about this lift any knowledge before i dive into the project would be appreciated.
i have no knowledge of "backyard" lifts for your particular truck, however i am very interested to see how you come out keep us updated
and many pics
