I dont know how to put pics in the private thing so I replied here,After lifting my truck and because articulation is important to me I found it necessary to grind the stops off the front drive shaft allowing it to work at much greater angle and to eliminate the need for a high degree shim. The more the pinion points up in the front the more bump steer you introduce by changing the factory geometry. I have attached many pics to show what to grind but the easiest way is to hold shaft down all the way and rotate it. Then look wheere it is binding. Dont be scared when after the lift is installed the front shaft doesnt spin, And by all means make sure it does spin after the lift or you will ripp out the u-joints. I will say I put in a bigger axle that was not designed for a 1/2 ton truck so this may be alot of the angle problems.Also if it is not your daily driver feel free to leave the sway bar out, I run with out and at 10 psi and it feels just fine,even under emergency small furry animal avoidance moves.Take a second to bust your spring pack apart and grease the leafs, put teflon pads in between as well if they dont already have them in. Get a new center bolt before you start.Make truck more flexy and rides smoother. If you dont haul any thing pull the over load off the bottom of the pack, that controversial but it will help the trrucks flex but cost 1" of clearence. Hope this helps.
