Re: Drop Pitman arm and 3 inch springs

I am running 3" lifted springs and 31" tires on my street rig.
I have stock steering. The only time I have any bump steer is when I hit a large bump with one wheel. Then it is only very minor.

Re: Drop Pitman arm and 3 inch springs

Okay thank you, i was just wondering if it would be worth it or to just get the springs, or a whole kit, i was thinking about gettting the Budget 3" lift from RRO, but i emailed them and this is what i got, so i might have to get my springs from somewhere else.

</font><blockquote><font class="small">In reply to:</font><hr />
The kit does not come with new ubolts, your stock ones should work if they
are in good shape. Not sure what Monroe part # you will need. The kit is
all in stock except for the shackle bushings, they have been on backorder
with Daystar for a few weeks, but are suppossed to finally arrive here at
the end of the week.

after hearing about some RRO stories i think i'd rather wait until i knew they had everything. [img]images/graemlins/tongue.gif[/img]

Re: Drop Pitman arm and 3 inch springs

It is always recommended not to reuse ubolts. Jim

Re: Drop Pitman arm and 3 inch springs

Yeah i wasn't planning on reusing my u-bolts, i just was curious as to if the kit came with them, Because it would suck to order them then have no u-bolts to put it together. I am not even sure i can get my nicely rusted U-bolts off without Breaking them. [img]images/graemlins/cussing.gif[/img] I hate MI for rust reasons

Re: Drop Pitman arm and 3 inch springs

any other place i can get new leafs at because i would do a spring over but my front springs look like this ~, and i would think that once i put the Rears up front they would deform too, its quite rusty down there. [img]images/graemlins/thud.gif[/img]
