I fixed my steering

Well I have had some time lately to look at my truck. After my D60 install I had unbearable bump steer that would put you in the other lane if you werent careful. I was running a S drop arm that I bought. Then I added a Block under the steering (thing?) on axle. That didn't seem to help so I added a bull horn style dual stabilizer, that helped some. The stupid drop arm always wanted to move side to side instead of front to back. So I eliminated it entirely and went back to stock link. That took alot of play out of system, it still has some bump steer but the reaction time is much better and I can safely go over 60 on rutted highways. So to recap, I have stock pitman arm to stock link to axle with block under it. I have the steering piece for passenger side crossover conversion(thanks Shawn!) but I dont have the $35 bucks to blow on the steering box and right now my truck runs and drives like never before so I am going to enjoy it before I mess it up again.[img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/smile.gif[/img] Thanks for everyones help on my earlier steering post's. (like months ago) See ya.
