Re: steering

If you are running spring under axle, you can use the stock wagoneer tie rod assembly and drag link, with the drag link you will have to shorten the pitman arm side, grind the end down to just barely fit into a cj adjustment sleave and weld the cj adjustment sleeve on, then use a cj tie rod end for the steering box.

Re: steering

Well I did the initial alignment myself. As for shocks, use the stock wagoneer spring mounts that are on the axle tub, and cut your spring mounts off your frame. Go out and buy a set of shock towers for a 89 ford f250. They bolt right to your frame, and let you use longer shocks. Here is a pic of mine.
